I noticed this bug in several puppies

Here's how to reproduce it:

Right click on folder and choose 'Search inside'.

Make a search inside folder (It can be successful or not)

Now do a search in system files for a file that should be there
like 'mtpaint'

It will give a false report.

Close and relaunch pfind and it will find mtpaint.

Yes, I can reproduce it. Added to todo-list.


Thank you
Sigmund

Here comes a (working) prototype of next generation of pFind.

It takes advantage of the latest gtkdialog and svg. Be aware of the right-click-menu and the support of multi-selection. The gui is meant to be even simpler than any previous releases.

I am requesting feedback of how you as a user would like it to work.
Please take a look, and tell us your thoughts.



Note!
I have got some bugreports that requires pFilesearch to be updated. This will happen.... For now, let's concentrate on the gui.


Thank you
Sigmund

Hello Zigbert

Running in Saluki this version does not allow me to open the location, although it is configured to use Thunar.

Cheers,
Oliverjames

Like it, except for the green text, not enough contrast for readability for my eyes. Right click functions are great.

Thanks for this and other fine utilities that you maintain.

Here's the interface for Apple's sherlock which was cutting edge
around 1990 Laughing

I didn't like using it but you might get some ideas from it.

A feature I did like about OS 9 was searching simultaneously
for a filename and mtime. For instance let's say I created a jpeg
5 days ago and stored it on an external hard drive but I had forgotten
the full name.

I would

1) select the hard drive

2) type in the name fragment

3) then pull down a menu nearby where I could choose the
number of days or a date within which to search

Pfind can do this I assume with mtime but the old interface
was confusing. Apple used a simple pull down menu,
not an extra window.

Clicking on the 'Edit' button made some changes to the
pull down menu (labelled 'Custom').

Looks like it got stuck in a ARM version of /proc

Looks good.
I can't remember - has the ability to sort by clicking on the column headings only been removed in this version, or was it already gone?
On that note, I'm wondering if it is technically possible with gtkdialog to allow resizing or reordering columns (by clicking and dragging)...

Personally I almost always use the advanced search... and I think the biggest improvement would be remembering all the selections in the advanced search so you can modify it slightly and search a second time.

I still think the "presets" idea I described previously could work really well. It would store each setting on a separate line in a plain text file, i.e. search text on the first line, search type (filename/content/both) on the second line, search location on the third, etc. (I'm sure there must be a clever way of reading each line of a file to set the state of a widget... but its pretty low on my todo list, so I can't see myself looking into it further in the forseeable future.)

Files could be kept for both named presets and recent searches (say the last 5 or 10 searches by default, or searches from the last week), both identified by filename.

Maybe a file select dialog would even be the best way to load search settings Wink

The two settings that should be saved in the advanced window is

1) the partition the user searched

2) mtime setting

Another possible feature is putting either an icon or a letter
in front of the file name in the search result window.

This would allow the right side of search result window to be hidden.

f=file
d=directory
l=link

Here is an image of a search using YAD code
It was discussed on this page

I tried to make an application to find files HERE
but it was buggy with foreign characters.

No, everything should be saved. If a search didn't find exactly what you want you could see all the settings used and adjust any of them.

This could maybe be fixed by keeping the pFilesearch window 'alive' after the search has been done.....

Showing filetype is not hard, but using letters look rather old-fashion if you ask me.
In fact pFind already shows the letter in the permission coloumn, but what about something like this:
