Angrysearch search app: results window never updates in slow (substring) search mode


I am trying to run angrysearch (desktop search-engine) but am faced with a problem.

In principle it works fine except substring and regex-mode.

I experience the same issue as the user jhooly ( He says:

In slow mode, regardless of what i put in the search bar, no results. the results list doesn’t change from the pre-search list of folders […]
Don’t even get the results that i do get in fast search.

fwiw Regex mode doesn’t seem to work either. the bar goes orange but again no updates in the search results box.

Does anybody know why that is?

Tnx in advance.

I haven’t run into this issue. Sorry.

Hi johnblood,

tnx for your reply.
It´s odd though as I don´t seem to be the only one who suffers from this problem (see link in my first post).
I tried using angrysearch within my VMs as well (xubuntu and bodhi linux). It´s the same there.
