View Full Version : Unity file lens very slow

January 20th, 2013, 08:24 PM
I've been running 12.04 for a while now, and noticed the unity file lens had become very slow. Getting results for a file search was taking over 2 mins.

Having a hunch, I ran a sqlite clean up on the zeitgeist database and it returned back to its speedy self.

The command being

cd .local/share/zeitgeist/
sqlite3 activity.sqlite vacuum

Hope that helps.
