Unix & Linux Stack Exchange is a question and answer site for users of Linux, FreeBSD and other Un*x-like operating systems.. It's 100% free, no registration required.

When you open the main menu in say MS Windows (7/Vista) you can quickly search for any item (apps/docs etc.) the same in Ubuntu (Dash), Kubuntu (Kickoff menu).

Is there any easy way to add such a search input which can filter apps (at least just apps no need for docs) in LXDE's main menu?

I Google'd a lot with no success, that's why I'm here.

I am a technical person so if you can give even more low level guide's would help (may be I should create some widget custom panel etc.)

This seems not possible easily.

But you can write LXPANEL plugins.
