I have been following the exact steps of this wikipedia lens tutorial with the result that the quickly run step gives the following warnings and the search does not display any results:

WARN  2012-05-11 10:55:06 unity.glib.dbusproxy GLibDBusProxy.cpp:283 Calling method "InfoRequest" on object path: "/unity/singlet/lens/wikipedia" failed: GDBus.Error:org.freedesktop.DBus.Error.UnknownMethod: No such interface `com.canonical.Unity.Lens' on object at path /unity/singlet/lens/wikipedia

Since I really exactly followed the steps, either something in the tutorial is missing or my setup is different:

>unity --version
unity 5.12.0

The lens file is there:

Any ideas where the problem is?

Did you run "sudo quickly install"? Check that /usr/share/unity/lenses/wikipedia exists and has a .lens file in it. –  mhall119 May 14 '12 at 13:31
    
Yes to both. I updated the question. –  xubuntix May 14 '12 at 13:36
    
Do you get any messages between the time you start "quickly run" and the time you open the dash to search? –  mhall119 May 14 '12 at 16:43
    
No, output starts with the search in the lens. –  xubuntix May 14 '12 at 16:50

Can you file this as a bug against bugs.launchpad.net/singlet, including the source of your lens if possible –  mhall119 May 14 '12 at 19:39
