app lens is empty

Asked by Mastir on 2015-02-13

when i use lens search, i've got everithing but application i was searching, even if i print its full name.
theres old bug, but workarounds outdated. "unity --repalce" dosn't solve the problem.
i've installed zeitgeist and zeitgeist-core packeges, but nothing in lens. in applications tab result only search plugins.
Ubuntu 14.04.

Run:

rm ~/.cache/software-center -R

Then:

unity --repalce

as you expect.

thanks for reply, this solution fixed half of the problem. i'm using multyseat configuration for two users, now i've got apps in search, but only for one of the seats. (i did this steps for both active users)

Its not multiseat specefic problem, in guest session app lens work for both seats, but not for my user.
