Index not updating

Post by moophone » Thu Aug 13, 2015 1:48 am

Hi,

I'm using 6.4.1 in el capitan public preview 3. I've noticed the index no longer updates. This happens everywhere (icloud, local HD's, etc).

If I perform the index update manually, everything updates just fine.

Any ideas? Do I have a setting disabled somewhere?

Doesn't work for me even if I refresh manually.

The files I'm trying to get at in iCloud drive are seen by spotlight though. Spotlight was not, but after forcing spotlight to refresh: https://support.apple.com/en-us/HT201716.

But LaunchBar doesn't see the files either way. Specifically, Jump Desktop files.

I installed VirtualBox in my /Applications folder a couple of days ago. Even after a reboot it is still not accessible to Launchbar.

Once I go in and manually force an update, then Virtualbox appears after a minute or five.

I suspect this is a 'rootless' issue in the 10.11 betas

Well, I am still having a lot of problems with Launcher no picking up Application, even after the update to 6.5. Typing command-space config and Apple configurator is not in the list. Not just not at the top, but nowhere on the list. Same search with spotlight and it's right there in /Applications/

Having the same issue. LB6.5 cannot find application while Spotlight finds it immediately. - After some Setting in Index, ie. also using Spotlight search db it started to work.

I'm having the same problem. I also remember having options for what would trigger an index update (either time-based or when folder contents change), but I can't find this anymore. For example, when I install a new application, I have to manually refresh the index for the new app to show up in LaunchBar.
