Kupfer – How to Index System Settings in Kupfer?


I am running Ubuntu 14.04. and installed Kupfer 208.


For some reason I cannot search and launch the applications from System Settings such as Display or Appearance. The Unity launcher finds all of them.

System Settings

I looked through the settings and list of plug-ins but could not find out how to index the System Setting.

I've just upgraded and ran into this problem. Run the following commands in the terminal to fix the issue (for the logged in user only):

Copy launcher files for control centre items to user specific directory for editing

cp /usr/share/applications/unity-* /usr/share/applications/system-config-printer.desktop ~/.local/share/applications

Remove attributes preventing the launchers appearing outside of Unity

sed -i 's/OnlyShowIn=Unity;//' ~/.local/share/applications/unity-*
sed -i 's/NotShowIn=KDE;GNOME;/NotShowIn=KDE;/' ~/.local/share/applications/system-config-printer.desktop
