This problem is located in the translation of the applications. The comment in the *.desktop file gets translated with those CJK chars.
Here is where the incorrect translation lies for gbrainy http://bazaar.launchpad.net/~vcs-imports/gbrainy/master/view/head:/po/zh_CN.po#L715 Same for gnome-sudoku http://bazaar.launchpad.net/~vcs-imports/gnome-games/master/view/head:/po/zh_CN.po#L5011 You can confirm it even more so if you copy that entire line and search it in the dash. ie. screen shot: sudoku: http://imgur.com/U2s8D gbrainy: http://imgur.com/Rf5dB -- You received this bug notification because you are a member of Zeitgeist Extensions, which is subscribed to the bug report. https://bugs.launchpad.net/bugs/827420 Title: Unity dash file search returns relevant files and folders but not all as I expect. Status in Ubuntu Translations: Triaged Status in Unity: Invalid Status in Zeitgeist Framework: Invalid Status in Zeitgeist Extensions: Invalid Bug description: I created 1 new file named “通信传染” and 1 new folder named “通信传” on the Desktop. Searching for “通” in the 'dash' (Super + F) returns 0 match. I expect those 2 files should appear in the search result. Searching for “下载” in the 'dash' (Super + F) returns the “Downloads” folder as expected. Searching for “文件” for “Documents” returns the “Documents” folder and 2 other documents I just created. However, there is also “文” in the home folder and in File System name in Chinese but they are not shown in the search result. I think the home folder should be shown, I am not sure about the file system.
