I have two laptops running Ubuntu 13.04. The only difference between them is that one has an encrypted home folder and I guess it is the reason preventing the dash to index, search and display all files but the opened. I have already tried
sudo updatedb as suggested here and elsewhere, and deleted the cache folder (as well as the program and config files) of USC as stated in a well reputed answer. After logout or reboot, the behavior is the same. Question is: how can I get the searching dash in the second case?
Same search, laptop 2 (encrypted home)
