Nautilus File Search is not working. It is as simple as that. Nothing is ever found.. Nothing happens... (Nautilus 2.30.1, on Lucid 10.04)
The same version of Nautilus running in a VM works fine, so I know I'm doing the right thing.
One "difference" I've noticed between my problem Nautilus and the VM Nautilus, is that the "Reload" button never appears... (nor does any list of files ever appear)...
I've tried removing ~/.nautilus (no effect)
I've reinstalled nautilus ... (no effect)
I'm a bit wary of doing a full reomoval of nautilus (and then a new install), because I don't know how this will effect the desktop integration; specifically... what is going to happen to my nautilus notes, which are tenuously attached to files via a feature of nautilus.. .
