Gnome main menu search applications

I stumbled upon one annoying thing/BUG, i understand the window where
you type in search for things in the main gnome main menu is supposed to
find an application right?
It’s backend is beagle right?
So while searching for everything works fine then applications just
don’t show up. I even added /usr/share/applications in hope it will show
me some apps but nada. Anyone knows why and how to fix it?


If builders built homes the same way programmers make applications then
one woodpecker would destroy whole civilization.

Hi,

I am not sure it is supposed to find apps, maybe it searches a file
associated to a given app =S. In my case, it searches files right, but
when try looking up firefox ,for example, in the applications section it
cannot find it, but I confess I am not big fan of it so don’t use it
often and have few knowledge of the Beagle Search.

Hope someone else can help you.

Regards

Well you’re maybe right BUT in index applications it shows x
Applications Indexed so why don’t they show up…

I’d like it to show me “live” output of the searches just like in KDE 4.
