View Full Version : [ubuntu] Unity search indexing

May 20th, 2013, 12:30 PM
Is there a way to adjust the indexing of the Unity search lenses? I find that most of the time Unity's search will not find files that are not fairly high up in the file hierarchy until I actually open them. Often I need to use Catfish or something else to find files.

Yeah, Unity can be pretty unreliable with searching for files.

I suggest you try out Synapse (https://launchpad.net/synapse-project) in the meantime. When it comes to searching, it beats Unity by a long shot.

Thanks epikvision. I find that once a file has been opened, Unity can find it. Thanks for the link. Catfish is pretty good too.

No problem. If you're happy with the solution, be sure to mark the thread as solved. ;)

If and when that solution comes I shall definitely mark it that way ;)
