Search tools (Affinity, Tracker Search Tool, etc.) not working - don't find any files
I was trying to use the Affinity Search Applet for AWN, but whenever I searched for any file or program that I knew I had, I never got any results. I installed the actual Affinity program (from the description on their Wiki) and was able to find some program but no files. I tried searching with the Deskbar applet and the "Search for ______ with tracker search tool" never found a file. The "Search for file names like ______" found every file I knew I had though.

I would really like to have the Affinity applet for AWN working, but there seems to be a problem with all my search tools. I've installed all the dependencies for Affinity. Why can nothing except that one search on deskbar find anything?

Okay, I've kind of gotten off Affinity for awhile, using the Xfce Appfinder and a simple "search for files" launcher in avant, but now, after installing AWN on my girlfriend's computer, I tried using Affinity and the same thing happened.

Is there something that I need to install in order for it to work correctly? I've checked all the dependencies. I've attached a screenshot showing what affinity looks like when I search for "Resume" with my documents folder to the left and "Resume.doc" inside of it.

Also, I installed Affinity as a normal application and it was able to find applications, but I couldn't find any files.
