I wanted to ask if it were possible to configure the unity search results in this way:

  • installed programs are always shown expanded.
  • programs "ready for installation" are removed and not included in the search.

I am sure ŕemoving the search and display for not installed programs will speed up the search and save valuable screenspace (I'm on a Dell Mini here).

Why installed programs aren't shown in the first place is a mystery to me.


Both of these are currently unconfigurable in Unity in 11.10 and 11.04, sorry.
