I migrated from Gnome 3.x to Unity, the one thing I miss is the contact search from Gnome.

Mine online contacts Google and Facebook are successful synced with online accounts. When I looked in Gnome contacts there was nothing synced?

Also I can not use Unity Dash to search my contacts. Anyone with an solution?

Sorry for the mediocre English its not my mother tongue.

Currently there is no Unity scope installed by default that will search your contacts.

There is a prototype scope that could fill that role if it is completed here:

It isn't really ready for prime time yet though, so is not in the Ubuntu archive.
