Next attempt is to embed pfilesearch into Pfind.
There are pros and cons also with this solution..... What is your opinion?









You need to install both pets to get things going.

I prefer some type of 'Popping up' action to get the
info about a file like CTRL-I or a tooltip popup because I
was trained on an Apple Macintosh but right clicks
make sense as well. Your latest pmusic interface is good.

Over the weekend the idea struck me that you should try to
crunch as much instructions and buttons in the top portion
of the Pfind window as possible and that would let the bottom
half of window to be the name and path.

The 'Calculate Total' would simply tell the user the total
number of hits (if he's interested in this info)'

The total button could be eliminated to save room by making it
a menu item. I see from your work over weekend that you have
choosen a notebook widget arrangement which is fine
however it requires an extra line or two of space, so
a menu item would be the better choice if possible

Here's the mock up. There is no 'Search' button to save space
but the window title could have the instruction 'Tap ENTER'.
And the red arrow down would be the advanced button.
The combobox saves quite a bit of space over the Radio button
widget.



...and here I show the 'Total' menu item.

Note that when 'Show all results' if chosen by user the
application would exit and then relaunch with all the results
shown in bottom of window. I don't think the user would
notice this if he had a fast machine.

Thank you for your ideas, and that you take the time to build mockups of them. In particular I like your alternative combobox for 'Where to search'. Depending on the final gui, this could give a cleaner gui.

I will put Pfind on hold for some days, so that everyone gets the time to enlighten us. Let's not rush into some it-kind-of-works gui.


Thank you
Sigmund

Another idea....

When the user right clicks on a folder and selects 'Search inside'
why not have an alternate script for pfind called 'pfind_foldersearch'

This script could be nearly line for line the same as your 'pfind' script
and located in /usr/local/pfind/ as well. It would be able to share
the local folder translations.

The one difference would be the default value of the combobox,
since the default selection would be 'Current directory' rather
than a System search.

I could make a Rox right-click link back to the script 'pfind_foldersearch'

______________________________________________________

Frankly I didn't like your notebook idea. Your previous version was better.

Rox right-click is meant to be built in Pfind.pet, but failed in these test builds..... Should be fixed.

Very Happy Thank you for mention it.

I used the following code to get Thunar to work

Code:


if [ -e /usr/bin/Thunar ];then
exec Thunar "${ROXPATH%/*}/"
else
rox -s "$ROXPATH"
fi

Some better icons are needed in recent pfind.
Note that the letter 'T' for Total is acceptable for
European languages --> French verb 'totaliser'
derived from Medieval Latin tōtālis

Other areas of world could use a different letter.

Pictures icon should use a paint brush or paint bucket icon.
Your documents icon looks too much like a paint brush,
so I would recommend a letter icon.

Video icon should leave out the arrow head.

Compressed documents could be a vise or clamp icon.

I worked on some icons at 300%

Thank you for your suggestions. Please be aware that the icons in Pfind are hardcoded SVGs. They are temporary built to /tmp/pfind-*.svg while Pfind is running. To change the icons the svg-path has to be edited. Here is the code (/usr/local/pfind/func):
