My system is in french
I search "screenshot" in yum (yum search screenshot)

xfce4-screenshooter.x86_64 : Screenshot utility for the Xfce desktop

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Open Add/remove software from the menu
2. Search for screenshot, no result
3. do the same thing with yum, usefull results
List of application matching the criteria
My system is in french and I am using an english word for a search (not ideal). I tried some other words (french and or english) but I can't come with the result gnome-utils or xfce4-screenshooter.
I can find the package using its rpm name: gnome-utils (useless). The word screenshot is in the comment. The package should come up in the list.
If you click on the search icon to the left of the search term, are you using search by _description_ or by _name_?
I did not know that this icon can specify where to search. I will check tonight.
Maybe a better visibility is needed?
By clicking on the small thing, I choose "description" and everything is fine.
I looked into the filter menu but never thought about the icon.
I saw empty search results numerous times, it doesn't matter what options you have setup in gnome-packagekit, just that you use search for first time you started your laptop.
Second time you use search in gnome-packagekit it works great.
Is this the same bug or should I open a new bug?
I also clicked on "Newest packages" and I see empty list.
After that I click on some other list, and click back on "Newest packages" and only then I see the message "Querying" appear and after a few seconds I see list of packages.
This is the same issue as with search, first time I enter anything to search nothing happens, only second time I see gnome-packagekit to start search and then display results.
I have saw this bug on multiple machines, why is this happening?
Most novice users don't even try second time, just close add/remove programs after it fails in search.
Now I oppened gnome-packagekit again and clicked on "GNOME desktop", gpk starts with message "Starting" then "Querying" then displays the list, but then a second later list dissapears?!? I'll record this to show you.
This is all with gpk-application 2.28.3 on Fedora 12.

Cool. The bug was gpk-application was ignoring the default search mode. We fixed that quite a wile ago.
