Bug Description

When I use the Music Lens a tiny portion of my music collection is shown (95 songs when I actually have16,033 songs). All of my music is currently available in the Music folder and I listen to it in Banshee.

Just to confirm, is this a bug in Unity-Lens-Music (https://launchpad.net/unity-lens-music) which is in the Oneiric alphas, or Unity-Music-Lens (https://launchpad.net/unity-music-lens), which is an add-on lens for Natty?

I have this problem in oneiric so I'm guessing unity-lens-music. Is there a way to regenerate the db?

(setting as low as the rhythmbox scope will soon be the default)

I'd set it higher.

My Rhythmbox install uses the exact same music folder, with the exact same amount of songs indexed, but similar low numbers are shown.

Mark Tully (markjtully) wrote :

The Banshee and Rhythmbox scopes of the music lens are set to return a maximum of 100 results if there's no search entered, 50 if there's a search term and 20 if it's a global search (i.e. from the home lens)

This was presumably done initially for reasons of performance and also due to the fact that it is difficult for the user to parse searches containing too many results. Few people will go through several hundred results rather than try to refine their search further.

There is an argument here for having the option for lenses to display "show more results" rather than "show X more results" as it is now, in situations where the number of results is artificially limited for performance or usability reasons.

The maximum number of results is set at http://bazaar.launchpad.net/~unity-team/unity-lens-music/trunk/view/head:/src/rhythmbox-scope.vala#L43 for Rhythmbox and http://bazaar.launchpad.net/~unity-team/unity-lens-music/trunk/view/head:/src/banshee-scope.vala#L47 for Banshee.
