The case I have is that I scp'd a folder of files from another box into my home directory. Now, I can't seem to figure out any way to reach those files without the terminal unless I switch to ubuntu-desktop. That seems really silly! The files are in my home dir -- not hidden off in the middle of nowhere!

Status in Unity: Triaged Status in Unity Files Place: Triaged Status in Zeitgeist Framework: Fix Released Status in Zeitgeist Data-Sources: In Progress Status in “unity-place-files” package in Ubuntu: Fix Released Status in “zeitgeist” package in Ubuntu: Fix Released Bug description: The Unity interface, with its files-place feature for user access to files/documents etc. is really great. However there is a problem since the search feature relies wholly on zeitgeist (AFAIK), in the zeitgeist is not tracking everything. E.g. in openoffice, I create a new file (or open an existing one) from within openoffice itself. This file does not show up, presumably because openoffice does not (yet) push its activity to zeitgeist. I guess any number of other programs could suffer the same problem. For the average user, this is surely going to be confusing. They will create documents via legitimate means ('New ...' buttons in their applications), and then expect to be able to search for them in the Unity files-place interface. To avoid this confusion I would guess there really needs to be a filesystem watcher on the home dir (or key folders within it) so that zeitgeist is aware of activity caused by non-zeitgeist-aware applications. _______________________________________________ Mailing list: https://launchpad.net/~zeitgeist Post to : email@example.com Unsubscribe : https://launchpad.net/~zeitgeist More help : https://help.launchpad.net/ListHelp
