Description of problem:
Pressing ALT+F2 to get the "Run Dialog" (xfrun4) has no result. Noticed that there was no key-binding defined by default for ALT+F2. Created a new pref. by doing:
Settings -> Window Manager Settings -> Keyboard
Once the pref is created, no facility to actually add a new key mapping.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. ALT+F2 - wait... xfrun4 doesn't run.
2. Settings -> Window Manager Settings -> Keyboard, Add a new preference/theme
3. No provisions to actually add a new key mapping. (No add button for keymapping visible)
xfrun4 does not run. No run dialog appears.
No visible method to add a new key mapping.
xfrun4 should have run. Should see the run dialog.
Should have a way to define a new keymapping/action.
Per our conversation on IRC, it looks like this was caused by the
xfce-mcs-plugins package not being installed.
The bug reporter installed Xfce via PackageKit.
Not sure why some packages in the Xfce group were not installed properly.
A 'yum groupinstall XFCE' resulted in:

Reassigning over to PackageKit to get looked at...
How did you install XFCE?
I installed it via the gpk-application. I didn't know xfce-mcs-plugins was
missed. I basically selected the xfdesktop package. I hand selected a couple
other packages, but I never removed a dep or anything. I basically migrated from
Gentoo, so I am not that familiar with the YUM command line and hence was not
comfortable with installing it via YUM. Kevin then helped me and walked me
through the process on IRC.
This is a known issue:
