1) In advanced search, I would like to have a preferences choice to place the list of found files at the bottom of the window, instead of on the left side as now. That will allow the complete file addresses to be included in the view, without having to scroll sideways.

On first read, I thought I'd concur. But looking it it some more, I think you'll need to associate the path with the file name. One way would be to display the complete path including file name. A little messy I think. And the window would be larger. My preference would be to place the path below the file name with a little offset for display clarity. Or different colours for filename and path. We'll likely have a smaller window, but would not necessarily prevent the need for scrolling. See screenie=option

Would there still be need for an additional window?

2) In preferences, I would like an additional option on setting the default 'Where to search'. I have found that I mostly search for files in System files or All files, not in Personal files which is default.

Are you saying that you want to avoid clicking the All Files radio button?

Well, yes, and yes. Both issues were answered by Zigbert, and I achieved what I asked for, see the image below.
But I discovered that I have another problem, but not with pFind. I was given a HP 22" widescreen monitor when my old 15" Dell gave in 3 days ago, and I just attached the new monitor, without rebooting/restarting the live CD. I have discovered that when I resize a window, the X/Y measurments belong to the old screen, not the new one! Very confusing! Confused
Oh, and I used the expression file addresses, it should have been paths.

Hi zigbert, thank you so much for your dedication with pFind. Over 10 years now!! Absolutely my most regularly-used application in the Puppyverse. I wonder whether it may be feasible to add a "find duplicates" module or component into pFind? Sometimes when I'm perusing the advanced features for specialised searches I'm surprised that it isn't there. Perhaps it's a logistical nightmare. Anyway I just thought I'd ask,
Best Wishes

I made a debian package of pfind 6.3
http://murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?p=971218#971218
for stretch dog linux

I wasn't able to find an icon for the desktop file Sad
/usr/share/pixmaps/puppy/find.svg
You should put it inside.

Bonjour,
Where to "find"... the template pot file to complete the French translation?
Thanks.
[EDIT]: I mistakenly pressed the "Search" button twice when the input box was empty and the application froze: had to kill it...
[EDIT]: I finally extract the template pot file from the Italian compiled translation 6.2 *.mo file, which seems to be complete.

Cordialement.

to Argolance ....
I see that you are trying to find a simple way to do translations.
http://murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?t=114347

GOOGLE TRANSLATION is only a rough translation unfortunately.

pot files must not be distributed with apps.
It confuses the gettext program apparently.
A POT file can be generated with a simple command (if the devx SFS is loaded).
xgettext -L shell <scriptname> -o <scriptname>.pot

https://www.gnu.org/software/gettext/manual/html_node/xgettext-Invocation.html

You should read my post --> I found an error in a script because a character in my script wasn't ascii
J'ai trouvé une erreur dans un script parce qu'un caractère dans mon script n'était pas le format ASCII

Bonsoir don570,

Although this is off topic, I answer here: concerning Google, you are right but the job Arrow DeepL does is very much better, nearly perfect! However, the po translation files have obviously to be carefully checked before to build the compiled mo files. Ideally, poeditor should be used for this purpose.

Even if this pot file is in another place than the mo file?

This is the command I usually used to build my pot files, but here, there are several files to process and I thought it could be quicker to get the pot file directly from the mo file. I was hoping to find the pot file in the pfind_NLS package where I think it could be without inconvenience for those who want to do the translation?

I have also experienced the same thing and I pulled my hair out to find the reason for the problem...
Thank you for all.

Cordialement.

I probably put it in a /share folder along with the po files.

L18L (momanager) warned me not to do that.

Bonjour,
Right clicking on a found file and trying to go to its location complains:
Code:
find: `/lib64/': No such file or directory

Would the latest version of pFind only be available for 64-bit systems?

[EDIT]: I am running Puppy Precise 5.7.3 therefore 32 bit

Cordialement.

Hi there - I'm here Wink

I have the pFind thread noted on my desktop paper note. Too many things at the moment, and no running 64-bit system...

Still breathing

- I can not reproduce this issue. Works OK on peebee's uPupBB 18.05
- pFind itself has no call for lib64 - could it be some of the underlying dependencies?

Bonsoir,
I noticed the same message running Xenialpup.
pFind in console, while right clicking on any found file in the list, clicking "Show location" in the contextual menu displays the message:
Code:
find: `/lib64/': No such file or directory

... but this time It jumps properly (it was not the case with Puppy Precise that fails) to the directory where is the selected file.
Quote:

It is indeed not pFind, but find which seems to cause something not fatal but wrong here...

Cordialement.

Salut Argo.

I have no problem at all, neither with pfind, nor with the underlying find
utility, under my XenialPup-7.0.6.

Which version of XenialPup-32 are you running?
-- Mine?
-- ETP's?
-- 666philb's original?
-- Perhaps you "woofed" your own?

It sounds as though, for some reason, your XenialPup is trying to run the
64-bit find on a 32-bit Pup.

IHTH. / J'espère que cela t'aide.
