Post #15 has to be the way to go. It merges the best of flexible, fast, and thorough, in a user-friendly way.
You cannot prevent people from installing programs that have no knowledge about ZG. Therefore, you always will need a thorough search. Having a "locate" every now and then is not good enough, because the user could well search for a file before "locate" has picked it up. However, if ZG can link into the file system itself (or the file system can notify ZG of changes), ZG would be instantly aware of any change. Is that possible? -- You received this bug notification because you are a member of Zeitgeist Framework Team, which is subscribed to Zeitgeist Data-Sources. https://bugs.launchpad.net/bugs/646724 Title: not all files show up in files-place Status in Unity: Triaged Status in Unity Files Place: Triaged Status in Zeitgeist Framework: Fix Released Status in Zeitgeist Data-Providers: Invalid Status in “unity-place-files” package in Ubuntu: Triaged 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
