Ubuntu :: Indexed Search For Files By Filename?

Jun 23, 2011

Is there really no way of having with a GUI an indexed file search by filename (not contents etc) which gives a detailed list? Great big icons as a "result" is no good to me, I want "details" that I can then click on to either open or copy etc. I tried the totally useless "Tracker" and Zeitgeist in my 11.04 is no better. There is a fantastic product in the win environment called everything.exe which does exactly what I want. I cannot be alone in this type of requirement. It has to have a GUI.

Slackware :: Powerful Indexed Search Tool

Jun 9, 2011

I am familiar with slackware's slocate.What slocate doesn't have is an option to limit returned results from specific users or groups.What's more I can't seem to find a gui/web frontend so that people without knowledge of cli can benefit from the slocate's indexed search.So I turn to you all, is there another tool, that supports per user/group searching and a web (preferably) frontend?(clarification) i think slocate returns results related to the user running the search (files that he owns as well as files that are owned by his primary and other groups). Is that correct? I basically want a search user (who will be a member of the several groups that our office is structured like) to get results by giving as search criteria not only the filename, but also the owner of the file and / or the group

OpenSUSE :: Nepomuk For Dummies - 0 Files Are Indexed

Mar 12, 2011

how nepomuk is supposed to work on opensuse 11.4 KDE? My nepomuk is active but it always says in "systemsettings" that 0 files are indexed. When I do a search via Dolphin, it never finds a file. It doesn't matter if I select "from here" or "everywhere". I also tried to select the root dir '/' to look for files to index, but still nepomuk says 0 files are indexed and dolphin finds nothing.

General :: Set A Pattern That Will Output A Filename Equal To The Original Filename In SoundConverter?

Jan 23, 2011

$ uname -a
Linux a #1 SMP Thu Dec 23 16:10:47 UTC 2010 i686 i686 i386 GNU/Linux
$ lsb_release -a
LSB Version: :core-4.0-ia32:core-4.0-noarch


How can I set a pattern that will output a filename equal to the original filename? E.g.

something.mp3 → something.ogg

And why isn't this implemented in SoundConverter?

PS: {Filename} doesn't work.

Ubuntu :: Sorting Files Based On Filename?

Nov 2, 2010

I'm currently trying to organize a media server so that things will be in some kind of logical order rather than the current setup of dumping everything of a certain content type into a single folder. However, the size and diversity of content within these disorganized folders precludes me doing things manually. Does anyone know of a program or script that could sort the files into folders based on part of a filename

Ubuntu :: Unity Files And Folders Search Doesn't Show 'old' Files?

Jul 20, 2011

I have noticed that the files and folders search in Unity, only shows up those files which have been amended (or possibly just opened) since the install.

i was wondering if there was a way i could have the search index (or something vaguely equivalent) all the files on my machine. This is especially important given that i reinstall the OS every six months on a new distribution cycle, copying all my old files across.

Without being able to see my old files the search is pretty much reduced to a recent history search.

Programming :: Moving Files To Directories Based On Part Of Filename?

Jul 6, 2010

I have a single directory of pairs of files, with the pairs sharing a string as the beginning of the filename:


I need to create a subdirectory for each pair then move the pair into the subdirectory.

I accomplished the first step using:

$find /foo -name '*T3*' -exec mkdir '{}.wrk' ;

I can use a regex to designate the pair and associate the directory, but how do I use regex in a path as the output of a move command?

Ubuntu :: Backing Up Files With "invalid Encoding" In The Filename?

May 10, 2010

I wish to install ubuntu 10.04 on my desktop PC, but before I do that I need to back up my HDD. Due to alot of filenames show as having a wrong encoding, ubuntu will not let me copy the files. We are talking hundres of files in many sub folders.

The way I see it, I either have to:

1. have ubuntu back up my files in annother way (and not simply dragging and dropping as I have tried)

2.use some sort of tool to convert/fix the filenames so I wil then be able to back them up.

I've tried the following using convmv as mentioned here, but with no succes.

convmv -r --notest -f windows-1255 -t UTF-8 *

I'm using a live cd, thus the files are not located in my home folder, but on a separate parrtition.

For instance, running find . | grep terms.htmlgives my expected result while locate terms.html doesn't even though locate gets updated db - it might have to do with that it's an USB stick the file is on?

Ubuntu :: Search For Something Inside One Of Files?

Nov 28, 2010

How can I search for one 6 letter word throughout all of my Ubuntu files?

Sounds simple but I've not found what I'm looking for. The bottom line is that I am wanting to clean up a file association in mime. I would have had more success if I were searching for this under XP. I must be doing something wrong.

Since I trialled a commercial company's map product under Wine somewhere in my system is still their name. Any gpx file I choose to download and the company's name appears in properties. Ggx files are also associated with Wine whilst an untainted PC in the house just has "Browse" as an "open with" option.

First things first, how do I find and delete this commercial company's name totally from any part of my system? How do I find their name in one or more of my files?
