Ubuntu – How to speed up search in dash


I use Ubuntu 14.04. Search in dash is taking very long time. Is there any procedure to make the search faster?

Best Answer

  • Install the Privacy Indicator applet and just turn off all the features you don't need.

    Then (in the same applet) click on Clear Zeitgeist log.

    That's the easiest and fastest way to improve the speed of the dash while keeping the functionality you do need.
