I really liked the look and feel of the new Nautilus, so I installed from the GNOME3-team/gnome3 ppa, but now I can't really search - it only finds things directly sitting in the current directory, and doesn't traverse down the file tree. Any suggestions?

Also, the version on the ppa is 3.6.0, but when I downloaded 3.6.1 from the project site and built from source, the same issue occurred.

    This is likely a bug that needs to be reported to the GNOME3 team directly, thanks! Oct 20, 2012 at 16:18
  • @user99245 This is actually a desired behavior by many users, do you know how to get it back?
