    mir-doc: /share/doc/mir-doc/html/dummy__input__manager_8cpp.html

    no matter how I truncate it.

    It will only work if I use a wildcard * and .html.

    Looks like something I am doing wrong here.

    Must of missed that, no matter

    It's possible that -
    you should do a restart & or the search tool doesn't like searching the "File system"

    So help it out & narrow down a bit, noting that the further away the longer it will take, a far point of /usr should work, /usr/share a bit quicker, ect.

    .... one of those days .. I had been using only a single '_' for android__buffer which is actually 2 "__" underscores during my search...

    these days happen ... yes they do

    Very odd.

    It will search for wav files but not txt , png or jpg nor ogg. It will find folders however.

    Dash search works fine.

    In my installation Nautilus will find files and folders that are shown in the open window.
    When I open Computer and search with b, it shows the folders that include a b.
    If I open usr and searh with config, it shows files and folders that include config.

    Before a search was recursive and if you knew the name of a file you were able to found it. Now it will be much harder to explore the file system.

    The Dash also behaves strange. When I search for var, the Dash shows the log and crash folders, which is nice, but not the var folder.
