A bit cumbersome, but can be done:
First, of course, you have to install gnome-system-tools because Unity
doesn't offer a single GUI app to manage groups. (Or does it?).
Then you open dash, click "Search App" icon below,
Of course one would need to know which is the 'Search App' icon...
(for the GNOME2 & other ill informed:
it is the one to the right of the
little house on the prairie box - the one that is supposed to look like
a ruler, crayon, and candle?)
LOL - It's really amazing we have to resort to descriptions like this
for lack of a proper legend. When first posted I ran into the same
problem: "What the heck is this?"
No. You need an internet connection & good folks like you to tell a user
how to do the simplest of tasks from the GNOME2 desktop (by adding a
non-standard utility from the 'Universe' respository to start). IMO it's
pretty pathetic that users now have to fumble around wasting time
finding workarounds & installing Universe packages and/or plugins,
simply to accomplish a previous basic, simple, task.
Glad to hear from you, Gary.
