Bug Description

I use the latest rev (16) and I don't get any results in the Lens but the terminal output shows that it does search and finds something. Here's the terminal output:

Thank you for reporting this bug. Have you restarted Unity after launching books-lens.py? ("unity --replace" from another terminal or Alt+F2).
At the time being, Unity doesn't launch Lenses when its already running and has to be restarted. The only way of "resolving" this bug, is launching the lens at startup: this will come soon via a PPA.

Changed in unity-books-lens:
importance: Undecided → High
status: New → Triaged

I'll make the PPA available soon, which should fix your problem.

Apologies for the delay! Yes it works now, thank you very much for the fix and PPA!
