Unity PLace Filesearch does not seem to on my computer (Ubuntu 11.10). I have followed these instructions...

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:pydave/unity-lenses
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install unity-place-filesearch

... the repository adds OK but when I sudo apt-get update, I get... W: Failed to fetch 404 Not Found

And then when I try to install...

E: Unable to locate package unity-place-filesearch

Any ideas?

You're running ubuntu 11.10 but the PPA you mention only has packages for Ubuntu 11.04.

I think you'll need to wait for the author of this program to update it to provide 11.10 packages.

The page for the FileSearch lens is here:
