Disable Unity Online Search in Ubuntu 14.04

This is a step by step tutorial on how to disable Unity Online Search. Whenever you search for an application or file in Dash, you notice that your search results also shows results from other 3rd parties like Amazon and other ads. Sometimes, this could be annoying as you would only want results from your machine.


To limit the search result, do the following:

– Click on System Settings > Security & Privacy


– Click Search tab and click ON to change to OFF


– When next you search for an application, the search result is limited and not cover the entire screen. Hmm look much better and readable 🙂
