    Default Search: Beagle does not find applications


    Beagle only seems to find documents and websites etc. Applications are
    never found, even when I search for popular software like firefox. What
    do I have to change so applications are displayed?

    Note: I have tried selecting all search domains (local, system, global,
    neighburhood) but no result.

    I tried installing beagle-index package but that doesn't help. I double
    checked, I have applications selected in the options for what beagle
    needs to search.

    Does nobody else have this problem? This didn't work in 11.0
    neither...

    In my case Beagle doesn't index evolution e-mails and firefox history.

    Hi,

    I was experiencing the same problem and replaced beagle with tracker. I
    prefer tracker to beagle anyway, because its footprint is easily
    minimized.

    First, search for and install "tracker" using the opensuse build
    service.
    'Software.openSUSE.org' (http://software.opensuse.org/search)

    Then using gconf, navigate to desktop>gnome>applications>main-menu
    change search_command key from "beagle-search SEARCH_STRING" to
    "tracker-search-tool SEARCH_STRING".
    This will provide the same Slab, or "Main Menu", search functionality.
    If you prefer the menu bar (Applications Places System), you can drag
    Tracker Search Tool from Utilities to the panel, creating a launcher
    with command "tracker-search-tool"

    It may ask you to activate tracker service the first time; in any case,
    "trackerd" and "tracker-applet" should be automatically added to
    Sessions>startup programs.

    Then uninstall or disable beagle.

    Make sure you give tracker some time (around 10 minutes) to finish
    indexing your home directory-then log out and log back in-before
    deciding whether it functions to your satisfaction.

    Tracker settings-such as indexing when on battery and
    resource/performance management-can be controlled using command
    "tracker-preferences"

    I should mention, however, that tracker doesn't yet support bookmarks.

    It's confusing to have a search box in the application menu that doesn't
    find applications...

    Anyway, *GNOME Do* seems to provide this functionality (and more).
