Not able to do quick calculation via GNOME Activities

Bug Description

With Ubuntu 17.10 I was able to press the Super key and do simple math quickly (i.e. 40/5 would give me answer of 8), not so with 18.04 testing. Is this due to the fact that GNOME Calculator application is a snap app? Also Calculator is missing in Search options in GNOME Settings.

Indeed, that's because the snap doesn't include the search provider, installing the gnome-calculator deb can be used as a workaround until that problem is resolved (it's currently being worked on)
