Ubuntu Precise Call For Testing Unity File Lens


The Dash search is an integral part of Unity. Users use the dash to search applications, files and other content online (eg. Ask-ubuntu lens). Until now, the file lens only showed files which were opened recently with the help of Zeitgeist. However, users have long wanted to search for files not opened recently through the dash. This long anticipated feature was not present for 2 cycles. That is all about to change with Ubuntu 12.04. Alan Pope, an employee of Canonical has announced a call for testing the new file lens which can now search for all files on your hard disk regardless of whether it has been opened or not.

Here is the file lens before,

And here is the new file lens which shows more files based on the search word,

As you can see, the dash now shows files like ubuntucv.odt which were never opened before but is still shown. Testing this new file lens is easy and simple enough for Ubuntu 12.04 beta users. You can install the new file lens by running the following commands in a terminal.

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:unity-team/lenses-testing
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install unity-lens-files
