Gnome Do question
 
Maybe i'm not too bright, but I cannot figure out how to summon those plugins I've installed, like Twitter for example.

Any help is welcome!

If you don't have ~/.local/share/gnome-do/plugins directory,create one and copy all the plugins to it.Restart Gnome-Do.I hope that's what you need.

I'm starting Gnome-do with the Windblows(super)+space key.Then you have two little windows.First one is highlighted,meaning that I work in that window now.That window is for typing words or letters of what you want to find.If I type F,then everything with F in my computer that Gnome-do can find will be there,to look at what it has found I use the up and down arrow keys.When I select what I want then I press Tab and I'm on the second window.In the second window I choose what I want to do with whatever is in the first window.For available options of what I can do,again I use up and down arrows on the keyboard.Sometimes there will be a third window and again the procedure is the same,for every plugin.
