Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 1289490
The Activities Overview doesn't list settings' modules
Last modified: 2015-12-18 09:32:55 EST
Description of problem:
When issuing an input inside the Overview, Gnome Shell doesn't perform the query against the settings (or at least, it doesn't show the results).
It might be a design choice, but I think it's a sort of regression, because Gnome 3.18 lists the available settings which match the user's string.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Open the Activities Overview
2.Type the name of a settings' facility (e.g.: "Monitor")
1.Only applications are listed; settings are not.
2.Both applications and settings should appear.
It's a Gnome+Wayland session, inside a qemu-kvm. Furthermore, my language is set to Italian (don't know if this might be relevant, though).
Those results are provided by gnome-control-center's search provider - is that enabled in Settings->Search? Do results for other applications (like "Files") show up in the overview?

Yes, it is. Moreover, every application is enabled.

1) Results (additional packages) from "Software" are displayed as expected.
2) It seems like files don't appear
1) The application "Software" can be launched
2) The application "File" (I mean... Nautilus) seems to crash when launched

That's obviously bad, but explains why there are no "Files" search results.
Does running the following in a terminal work?
$ gdbus call --session --dest org.gnome.ControlCenter.SearchProvider --object-path /org/gnome/ControlCenter/SearchProvider --method org.gnome.Shell.SearchProvider2.GetInitialResultSet "['monitor']"
Florian, thank you for the support.
I've tried to run a fully up-to-date version of Rawhide and the bug isn't reproducible there. Everything works out of the box, without issuing gdbus (even Nautilus doesn't crash on startup anymore).
I think an update (between 2015-12-04 and 2015-12-17) has fixed it and improved substantially the overall situation.
I still have that "20151204" guest here, so let me know if there is a need for further testing around this issue. But, in my opinion, we can close this bug report, as it isn't reproducible with an updated Rawhide.
