  1. Not Finding Applications

    Sent. Argh … can't open /Applications/Google Chrome.app anymore (need to type fa chrome). That hurts. ;-)

    Did what you described above. No change in behavior: lexikon / dictio.. - no result fa lex... - works

    > fa lexikon That works! Also with all apps mentioned in my previous post!
  4. Not Finding Applications

    And even more: /Applications/Utilities/Activity Monitor.app /Applications/Utilities/RAID Utility.app /Applications/Utilities/Grapher.app /Applications/Utilities/Network Utility.app /Applications/Utilities/X11.app … not that I need them all. Just FYI.

    Andrew, > Is Alfred finding that when you type Lexikon? No. It doesn't find it at all – I tried so much combinations (german and english). No chance.

  8. Not Finding Applications

    OK, I tried this "low level reset of metadata" as mentioned above. Now I can see … even more applications! But not all. :-( For example, I cannot start the "Dictionary.app" from the applications folder. Though, I can navigate via Alfred to /Applications/Dictionary.app but I cannot start it directly by typing e.g. LX (in german it's name is LeXikon). I cannot even find or see it by typing "Dictionary". (the "define" shortcut works, BTW).

    rcw3, thanks – I'll try that, too.
  10. Not Finding Applications

    Just a ' me too' here. Upgraded from 1.x to 2.0.4 today – rebuild spotlight index didn't help. Some apps will be found (even in sub-folders), but some not (e.g. Chrome, Safari). Strange: Numbers could not be found (in it's sub-directory \iWork'09). But, Pages (same dir) was found immediately. After a while, Numbers was found, too. (However, still missing my most used applications, see above). UPDATE: After submitting this post (and about 30 minutes after rebuilding the Spotlight Index) the missing Applications Chrome & Safari were found. But now Apple Mail is gone. Odd.
