I know this isn't exactly what you are looking for, however, you can run the following command: gsettings set org.gnome.nautilus.preferences enable-interactive-search false Now, you should be able to open Nautilus or Files and you will be able to search the current directory recursively just by typing stuff.

If you upgraded from previous release (it sounds you did) you may try to clear your config files with mv ~/.config/google-chrome ~/.config/google-chrome-backup and maybe also clear the app shortcuts with mkdir ~/.local/share/applications-backup && mv ~/.local/share/applications/chrome* ~/.local/share/applications-backup (both commands should ...

I don't have enough reputation to comment, so I'm writing this as an answer. It looks like the problem your referring to is a bug in Chromium. Until it is fixed you could use Google Chrome which does not have this bug. Update: Now the bug is fixed for me with the latest version of Chromium.

Problem solved. Somehow the Dash plugin for Applications got disabled during the upgrade. Re-enabling it cured the problem. I feel foolish that I didn't see this earlier, but I learned something. It sure is nice to have the search feature back.

As far as I know, Unity already searches the entire system for files or information, as long as the user has permission to read it and the drive the information is on is mounted.

I had a similar issue for quite a while, and I tried every fix possible to get applications to appear, even so far as to remove Unity and install it once again. However, I discovered that Chrome had installed an app with unicode characters in the name. On Windows, it wasn't an issue at all, however, on Ubuntu, whenever this app was synced and installed, the ...
