I installed a PPA that served as a workaround, until an update this morning. Now there is no type-ahead and the PPA does not work. One more vote for a type-ahead.

I personally find this annoying. If I want to search, I'll click the search icon. Often I'm looking at a long directory listing and simply want to jump to a certain point in it, and type-ahead find works great for that. Would Ubuntu consider patching type-ahead find back in?
