Description Ryan Rowe 2017-01-11 14:01:23 UTC
Description of problem:
When I use the Gnome search for "network" and press enter, I get system monitor.
I'd like to get the network component instead.

Does search belong to tracker? If not sorry.

I'm afraid this won't be fixed - application results like "System Monitor" appear in the top row, followed by results provided by applications (like "Settings").

(If you really want, you can force gnome-shell to treat Settings panels as applications with something along the lines of:

    $ cd /usr/share/applications; for f in gnome-*-panel.desktop; do sed /NoDisplay/d $f >~/.local/share/applications/$f; done

You probably want to disable the Settings search provider in the search panel in that case, to avoid duplicate results)
