Is the date format in pfind really controlled by gtk? I'll have to look at the code again...

GTK2 and it effects doesn't mean much to me being simple end-user.
What does it do to applications?

Pfind is a simple (well, no a complicated Smile ) shell script that uses another program, gtkdialog to produce a gui for another program, find. It is therefore limited to some extent by the capabilities of those other programs.

Béèm wrote:
I never used searchmonkey and had a quick look. I didn't have a problem to set the date at dd/mm/yyyy

So why can't it be done in pfind?

Changing the date format could be done in pfind (as could your other request - exporting all the columns). It is just a question of how complicated (and slow) it will be, and whether Sigmund (or someone else) puts in the time to write new code for it. Personally I think everyone should always use the 2010/06/09 format as it easily sorted (e.g. if you used a different format in Pfind you couldn't sort it by clicking the column header either).

Unfortunately it is not feasible (unless there is something we don't know) to sort the size column (or a column of dates in another format) due to the limitations of gtkdialog.

Hey Zigbert, did you know that "sort by extension" omits any results that don't have an extension?

Thanks disciple.
That makes more sense to me now. Hope I retain the lesson.
Now this quote makes more sense to me also.

So OOo doesn't use GTKDialog and therefor formatting is developed by the developer.

I tried to see how Pfind looked like, but it is a rather special form.

As for searchmonkey, I don't know if it's GTKDialog based also. I see it as a binary file only. But the date selection is through a calendar.

Also I have no objection to use 2010/06/09 as this is indeed YYYY/MM/DD
In fact when I put a date in a file name, I use for today, xxxx.2010.06.09.xxx

And now I discovered that one can sort a column through the menu, which renders correctly, I avoid pushing the header for sorting.
So it would be nice if pushing on a header to sort renders the same way as through the menu, but if too complicated it can stay as it is.

OOo doesn't use gtkdialog or even GTK - they have their own unique gui toolkit. OOo can mimic your GTK theme though.

No, searchmonkey does not use gtkdialog - it is a standard c & gtk program.

Ah... sorry, I'd got confused about which date format you were getting.

The quote is somewhat tongue-in-cheek - I don't think GTK is really that bad.
In the case of Pfind I think the limitations are less the fault of GTK itself than of gtkdialog, which is really quite primitive.

Hi again, here are some more bugs Sad I thought I had already reported them... but maybe I forgot.

1. The action buttons don't work if you searched in ./
e.g. the browse button produces an error like this for each file:
Code:
cp: `/tmp/searchresult15883/07 Vals Venezolano': can make relative symbolic links only in current directory

e.g. the play button produces errors like this for each file, although you'll get a different error if you don't use audacious:
Code:
unix-io: Cannot open /tmp/./Tim Daniel/Grace Mercy And Peace/11 God Is With Us.mp3: No such file or directory.
MADPlug-Message: error initialising input


2. pfind -d doesn't work with paths with spaces.
Code:
# pfind -d "/initrd/mnt/dev_save/My Documents/Alister New/Multimedia/Music/new"
find: /initrd/mnt/dev_save/My: No such file or directory
find: Documents: No such file or directory
find: New/Multimedia/Music: No such file or directory

** ERROR **: GtkDialog: Could not find the dialog description in the environment variable 'MAIN_DIALOG'.
aborting...
/usr/local/pfind/pfind: line 442: 22182 Aborted                 gtkdialog3 is /usr/sbin/gtkdialog3


3. When you click the browse button the symlinks created do not have extensions. Or is this intentional?

PostPosted: Tue 07 Sep 2010, 19:03    Post subject: Suggestion for PFind -- show the search term in the results  

A search which looks on a terabyte of storage takes a few minutes.
Meanwhile, I work on Computer #2.
Then, the PFind search-results window appears on Computer #1.
I turn back to Computer #1 but have forgotten what the search term was.
Sometimes it can be inferred, sometimes not...

(Hmm, this looks like a good start on a haiku...)

Yes, I have the same trouble, but only using one computer Smile
Personally I'd like it to display the actual find command that was run... it would help me learn to use find as well as helping with troubleshooting Smile

Show find command is a good idea.

disciple
I have looked at the bugs, and fixed 2. The problem of action buttons when using ./ as search-path worked for me. (after fixing the other 2 bugs) Hopefully this happens for you too.

The reported 'action buttons does not work when searching ./' seems to works with Pfind 4.20. I have not done anything to solve it??????

Is it possible to do a pfind search and then select all (or a group of) results and delete them?

The usual ctrl-arrow and shift-arrow method to select does not appear to work.

At the moment I am trying to delete Google-Chrome (actually anything with "google" in it from my Netwook with Fluppy 005 -- but I'd like to do the same on all of our computers.

Google-chrome does not show up in Package Manager or else I would have done this there (which would probably be a more-clean method).
