It is getting interesting Smile

This one should give you full control over advanced search.
Please test.

You need to install both pFilesearch and pFind to get it work.



Question: What kind of filetype is this?
Code:
# file /dev/snd/timer
/dev/snd/timer: character special
pfind-4.9.8.pet
Description 
pet

 Download 
Filename  pfind-4.9.8.pet 
Filesize  14.67 KB 
Downloaded  170 Time(s) 
pfilesearch-1.29.pet
Description 
pet

 Download 
Filename  pfilesearch-1.29.pet 
Filesize  9.64 KB 
Downloaded  176 Time(s)

I have been using pfind 498 for the last few days in Exprimo
and Saluki and it works fine.

Concerning icons -----> What about icons for pictures,sounds
and the various compressed archives like pet and tar.gz
Icons might make them look nicer in window.

A feature I would love ---> Click on a filename in search results
and tap ctrl-I for info. This would pop a window
to give details like permissions,size, and the application that
created the file.

Or better still ---> Just move the mouse pointer over a filename
and the info popped up automatically without
even a click!! Cool

Fantastic! Hopefully I'll remember to check it out when I get home this weekend.

Concerning icons (in the package manager as well as Pfind), how much do they affect performance?

And rather than manually assigning icons for particular mime types, have you looked at whether there is a way for GTK to directly assign the icon from the GTK theme, based on the mimetype? It seems like it might be possible, and that way the icons would match those displayed in Rox (or whatever GTK filer the user has).

Please do, and report back.
I have started to knock down some bugs in pFilesearch.

Suggestion: To save about an inch of width I suggest using icons
rather than text. A tooltip pop up to give the name of the icon
would be nice to avoid confusion.

Also the total should be at the bottom rather than the top of the list.

Also an alternate wider window style should be an option
in the menu. Maybe a couple of inches wider to see the full path.

Here's a mock-up.

It appears that pfind can't get a listing of ALL files in folder recursively.

I am able to get what I want with the following command
Code:
ls -Ra


The user would right click on a folder, Click on "Advanced" and
click on "Complete file list (of current)"

If the advanced window had a button to generate a text file
with this info it would useful.

Or maybe it could be a menu item in the front pfind window??

Yes, that would be good. But with the extra line for "Total" on your picture, is the window short enough for small screens?

Can't you just search for * ?
It used to work.

Sometimes we agree - sometimes we don't.....
.... This time we could probably agree if
- The icons was good-looking
- The icons shows some logic information
- The icons was very small in kb
- The icons was very small in pixel-size. As disciple mention, we have a screen-height to fit inside. I measured my gui to 475 pixels tall....

It is great for me, but I think it might be a bit clunky for a lot of people. Or perhaps it isn't working quite right on my machine. Can you please confirm if it is working as intended?
1. When I run an advanced search the pfind window updates to display the results. But the pfilesearch window stays on top! I imagine it would be fairly easy to raise the pfind window using something like xdotool.
2. If I close the pfind window while the pfilesearch window is open, pfilesearch stays open. And if I then run a search in pfilesearch, it doesn't reopen a pfind window or anything to display the results. (I guess this would be trickier to fix - you wouldn't want to close all pfilesearch windows when you close a pfind window, only the one spawned by it.)
3. If I click the advanced button again, I get a new advanced window. If possible I think people would prefer this to raise the first pfilesearch window... but I guess raising the correct pfilesearch window might be a little difficult. And it is kind of cool controlling the same pfind window from more than one pfilesearch window Wink

It might be better to put the total at top rather than bottom
because the word "TOTAL' (if it was a text tag) could be
located more definitely and not move about depending on
font size.

By the way I got the icons out of standard puppy locations
(mostly mini-icons ) but I made modified the document
and the video icons to make them white.

I spotted this when opening a script with pfind
(using a double click or using the menu).

The link is used rather than the actual file so
geany has the strange heading (see image)

This is very confusing, but I discovered that the actual file
is opened and can be modified.
It would be better if the real path of file was used.

Got it, working on another approach. Need to restructure some code.....

Just a note to those who have reported bugs - we are still not there yet. First we need to settle how this script should work. Then there will come more restructuring of the code - then we will see more bugs - then it's time to bugfix.....
