Sounds good

I am using 11.10 and for some reason when i search for a file it works
great, if I click on it and open containing folder it opens up a terminal.

anyway i will do an upgrade to 12.04 as one of the other issues is not
being able to right click on the desktop and create anew file or
folder,   I can do this in 12.04 so will upgrade,  should be pretty
smooth now.
