Having got past bug 662619 I have unity-place-files and zeitgeist-
daemon installed and running. In gnome-activity-journal, I can see my
recently changed files, and when I click the "files & folders" button,
I can see some downloads, recent files, and favourite folders.
However, when I type into the search bar in the files lens, the
spinner turns briefly but the list of files does not change. If I
type a full filename or a substring it doesn't open or narrow down to
that file. Also, in the global search lens, whatever that's called, I
can't search for files at all.
