Comment 0 for bug 705944


since a few days synapse does not show any folders anymore - of course I made sure that the directory plugin is enabled. I also disabled it, restarted synapse and enabled it again. It still did not work. The config.json file seems to be proper, too.

Starting synapse from commandline, I get the following output each time I press any letter:

** (synapse:26138): WARNING **: zeitgeist-plugin.vala:574: Zeitgeist search failed: Remote Exception invoking org.gnome.zeitgeist.Index.Search() on /org/gnome/zeitgeist/index/activity at name org.gnome.zeitgeist.Engine: org.freedesktop.DBus.Python.xapian.DatabaseCorruptError: Traceback (most recent call last):

I've tested synapse, from your download section and I also tested the recent version from branch. The folders I tried to find were ordinary folders within the home-partition (like "Documents", "Music", "Desktop", "Videos").
