  -- Original report ---------------------


  since a few days synapse does not show any folders anymore - of course
  I made sure that the directory plugin is enabled. I also disabled it,
  restarted synapse and enabled it again. It still did not work. The
  config.json file seems to be proper, too.

  Starting synapse from commandline, I get the following output each
  time I press any letter:

  ** (synapse:26138): WARNING **: zeitgeist-plugin.vala:574: Zeitgeist search

  I've tested synapse, from your download section and I
  also tested the recent version from branch. The folders I tried to
  find were ordinary folders within the home-partition (like
  "Documents", "Music", "Desktop", "Videos").
