[Bug 685828] [NEW] Enhance applications usage logging.


You have been subscribed to a public bug:

Thanks for logging used apps into Zeitgeist! It's one thing I always
missed in Zeitgeist.It's a pity it doesn't do it with items launched
from gnome-main-menu or others.

Anyway here are some ideas. I assume you already have plans to explore
that feature, so I may repeat your ideas.

Apps are logged under "Unknown". It would be nice to log it under
"Applications" or "Synapse", the former being better, maybe in the
future Zeitgeist could place there Applications used through other way
different than Synapse.

Another thing, if I run Activity Journal and press on those logged
items, synapse launches, instead of the application.

Also, it would be very nice if those apps appeared under the
"Applications" tabs in Synapse. For example, if I launch Syanpse and
right away I press "down" under the Internet "tab", I see the last
logged webpages. Same could be done for the "Applications" tabs. I also
guess that using Zeitgeist to log app usage can be helpful to let
Synapse make better choices and remember what we last launched.

Again, I assume you thought of some (or all) of these ideas. Hope at
least one is new :)

Thanks for such a nice launcher, it replaced my other choices in 1
