    Unhappy Unity Dash - searching

    Have anyone noticed this bug? It has to be caused by recent updates.

    Ubuntu Unity Dash search is really unusable now. It can search by most used apps but it have to be relevant. Prioritizing = OK, this is mess.

    For example, lets search GIMP:

    g: Home Folder > Text Editor > VLC media player > Files > GIMP Image Editor > Software & Updates > GParted Partition Editor ....
    gi: Firefox > Home Folder > Text Editor > Code::Blocks IDE > VLC media player > Rhytmbox Music Player > Files ....
    gim: Firefox > Home Folder > Empathy Internet Messaging > Files > Archive Manager > GIMP Image Editor > Image Viewer ....
    gimp: Home Folder > Files > GIMP Image Editor > Unity Tweak Tool > Time & Date > Simple Scan ....

    REALLY?

    Considering raising bug against this... It is really crappy, before it was just like two letters and enter, now??! Whole "GIMP Image Editor" do not cause to be GIMP at first place.

    Btw: Old bug about internet connection makes me mad because this is maybe 5th post I had to completely rewrite, because resending request just clean up editor instead posting topic / post.

    It is just as you say - g gets gimp in the row, then it's gone until gimp (but still back in row
    I guess there are more important things afoot.. (nexus7, rolling, mir, whatever.

    but appears only to affect 32bit as my 64bit installs are working correctly.

    Re: Unity Dash - searching

    i like to be able to search for pictures in my picture folder using the picture lens or type in a file name and it appears without me having to preload it first (if I dont open it in the folder first, it doesnt show in the dash). I'm with you on this one. Dash needs better searching.

    [SOLVED]Unity dash (search) not working

    I just did a fresh install of Ubuntu 13.04 (64-bit) from the daily image. Everything else seems to be working fine except Unity Dash. It seems to be stuck at "searching" and the bottom icons (lenses or whatever) seem to be missing. Other Unity features like HUD and the launcher work just fine. Even the social Dash responds to input as it should. Has anyone else had these problems with the Dash? Or just happen to know a solution for this?

    Here's some screenshot's to illustrate the problem:
    Dash Home (no input) http://imgur.com/0xSyM6E
    Dash Home (with input) http://imgur.com/mpvU7R9
    Dash Social (with input) http://imgur.com/AvEyF56

    Thanks!

    EDIT: Solved the problem myself. Apparently I didn't have any lenses installed . I had to install them manually o_O. What a weird bug.
