And the arrow doesn't seem to do anything.

The arrow filters the results (if you hover your mouse over it, you'll see a tooltip that says "Show only files in this category").
The first arrow button (on the "Total" results line) won't do anything unless you have already clicked one of the other arrow buttons.
A possible enhancement would be to make the arrow button inactive ("grayed out") when it is not applicable.

I click the button and I get some alias icons. Why do I need them?

Maybe you don't need them. If not, then you don't need to click the icon. But some people find them very useful sometimes Wink

i've come across a problem with search results containing files with the same name but in different directories, for example searching for 'index.php' in a website download. If I select 'view with file manager' or 'open in text editor' only one of the files with a duplicate name will be shown.

A way around this would be to check if result already exist and add an appendix if so like (2).
I have added this to the todo list. But it won't happen soon, as all my focus is at Pmusic 2 right now.

I also have a request that the directory searched in is retained from one search to the next (even if opened from the Puppy menu)
This is harder to meet with the existing structure of Pfind


Thank you for the feedback

Darkcity
I have not fixed your issue, but still not forgotten. the workaround is so easy (open one by one, by clicking on file), that I didn't spend time on it this time.

no worries, I might look at it myself. I've been working on the wiki recently.

I am using 422 from Lucid 526rc. In the first page of this thread, you show the current directory being displayed. This is not shown when I run pfind -d /root, run from menu, from right-click, or click on the RoxApp in /usr/local/apps. I was disappointed, as that feature seemed a very nice one to have.

In both 421 and 422, in you run pfind -a or pfind -ad /root, the pfilesearch window opens. If I cancel out without searching, there is an 8-10 second delay and then an empty search box appears. Can it be made to either just close down or else behave the way it acts if you go in via the menu?

In Lucid Puppy 525 I came on this unusual discovery.

Hits that had both a French accented character and the filename had
an empty space look strange. I tried 'Open'
from your menu and it wouldn't open. These are filenames
that Rox Filer turns red as a warning to show that they are
improper I believe.

Sub_title: unusual discovery
 

Hi
@don570 ... Bonjour ou bonsoir selon le cas ... Smile
maybe trivial but sounds indeed like a problem in accentuated character recognition...
Was not the case on my current Pfind 4.18+NLS file, which recognizes "é" etc...

(note: As much as possible, here I'm living with avoiding the use of accentuated characters in directories and file names - Here: locale = french + fr_BE )

Cheers, Charlie

Good point Charlie.

I've been using Lucid Puppy 525 pfix=ram
over and over to test Right-click-5.2.1.pet
My latest and best!!!

Probably there is a difference between
running in English and French. I'll test over weekend.

I did test that a blank space in the name causes the
trouble with accented characters.

I've been checking some more, and I find the only problem
is a few files that Rox Filer shows in the color red.

They are html files of radio-canada.ca's schedule
downloaded to a fat32 USB stick using Microsoft Explorer
on a Window's computer.

So there is some incompatibility between Windows and linux

I'm not 100% sure that fixing it will help with Pfind, but IIRC the red files in rox mean the partition is not mounted with the correct code page. You might be able to find the code page at http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Windows_code_page. I can't remember off the top of my head exactly what to do with it.

N.B. I might not be remembering this quite right...

I've just found this.
And maybe even search for mount on this page.

Thanks for the links.

I was on a Windows network at the time and
saving pages to a USB stick (fat32)

Only a few files showed up red, so there
is no problem.

Ah, OK. I presume you saw the rox rename trick to fix individual files?
