Mine does not even install; it can't find "unity-singlet". Isn't that supposed to be python-unity-singlet? I'm also on 12.04.

The install is easily fixable, but it doesn't work even after that. Here's the relevant piece of info:

mfisch@caprica:~/Downloads/work$ ./dictionary-lens

(process:18874): libunity-WARNING **: unity-scope-factory.vala:78: Unable to search for scopes: No such file or directory

I think this was written with an older version of singlet, I imagine porting it to a newer version would allow it to work

There's now a dictionary scope instead now

In 13.10 Saucy unity-dictionary-lens is not even available anymore. (Same for unity-calculator-lens, btw.)

Will they ever be be available again?

Where is the source code repository?
