If I press Super I usually start typing and it searches for both applications and files. But if I open a file after searching and try to press super again, it only searches for files and not applications. Is this a glitch? How can I fix it?

Yes it is still on the "Home" Scope. I'm using Ubuntu 14.04.


You can try resetting unity with below command

unity --reset

In case you are using 14.04 , above command is deprecated and you will need to install unity-tweak-tool by

sudo apt-get install unity-tweak-tool

and reset Unity with

unity-tweak-tool --reset-unity

BTW have you tried synapse ? , very good alternative to unity-dash

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:synapse-core/ppa 
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install synapse

hit Ctrl + Space , and search anything you want
