Application Menu Indicator
nautilus (Ubuntu)

Bug Description

Binary package hint: unity

From Desktop (Minimize all windows, if you have any). Go to Top panel Menu, Select Places --> Search For Files ...

That will open the Search Window, but no Text box is there.

I am using Acer Aspire 4720z

Please find the attached Screen shot for the same.

From any other File Manager window if i select Go --> Search For Files.. , Thats giving Search Box OK.

Actually what you're seeing is the nautilus menu, Unity does not have a Places menu on the panel like gnome-panel does. I suppose nautilus could make that part a bit more intuitive though.

affects: indicator-appmenu (Ubuntu) → nautilus (Ubuntu)
summary: - Search Window TextBox disappeared
+ nautilus Places->Search for Files is confusing
Changed in indicator-appmenu:
status: New → Invalid
