I want to be able to find specific help about problems I find in Ubuntu 11.04. Whenever I include this in a search I get a huge amount of garbage about ubuntu 11.04 and cannot then find the answer to my query. For example, today I realized that my google mail address book had vanished with one of the updates. I found that contacts was supposed to give me the address book but it only gives me a list of my phone numbers from my cell phone (how did it get those?)
I then put in the following query:
gmail in "ubuntu 11.04" does not have +"address book" This gave me only 4 results, none of which was in any remotely related to this query, but were related to Ubuntu 11.04!
Being able to structure a query that limits results does not seem to be enough.
Any Ideas?
Thanks for any help,
Hubert Hickey
