Subject description: search folders with a right click
 

pfind_rtclick.pet will allow you to right click on a folder and search it and its subfolders with pfind file finder. Simple and fast.

Enjoy, J

1. I've installed it and rebooted, but can't see how to use it.

2. If I r-click on a folder in my Xfe file manager, I see no offer of the choice to search or use Pfind.
I made Xfe my default file manager by installing xfe-default-file-manager-0.1 .

3. If I run ROX, there is "Mount point->Pfind", but I cannot make that find anything; I see no obvious way to specify that which is to be searched for.

4. In Thunar [the original native file manager], there is "Find here...", and I can find things using that. Very Happy
Is this the only one that will/should work with this program?

Any suggestions for a fix for my problem?

Xfe is the file explorer in which I'd like to use this functionality.

Sylvander,
I'm not very familiar with Xfe. I think I tried it a few years ago with debian-lite or some such. Does it have right click functionality? Can you right click on a file and do things with or to it?

1. " Can you right click on a file and do things with or to it?"
You most certainly can.
Has an extensive right-click "context menu".
It's like the Windows Explorer, but better.
All kinds of features.
Has [as you choose] a folder hierarchy pane plus 1 or 2 file panes.
You can use the hierarchy pane to choose which folders are displayed as panes, then copy or move chosen items [folders/files] from one pane to the other.
Some screenshots and features.

Sylvander,
Pfind right click is a script file, /usr/local/bin/pfind.sh. It is very simple:
Code:
#!/bin/sh
pfind -d "$1"

You will have to find some way to link this script to your right click menu.

In ROX that means symlinking /usr/local/bin/pfind.sh to /root/.config/rox.sourceforge.net/OpenWith/pfind.sh or, as I did, /root/.config/rox.sourceforge.net/OpenWith/.inode_directory/pfind.sh. After I made the symlink I renamed it "search with pfind".

If there is other right click OpenWith functionality in xfe I'm sure you will be able to do it.

Good Luck, J

Did a bit of searching in the BoxPup file system, but I'm unable to find anything that might lead to a solution.
Since I'm a Puppy & Linux newbie I'll concede defeat. Sad

Sylvander,

I know nothing about xfe but thought I would try looking for info as an exercise. There appears to be zero howto documentation for xfe - typical! However, if you look here under Configuration Files you will see what files to look at to enable configuring of xfe.

http://roland65.free.fr/xfe/index.php?page=docs

Still doesn't say what can be configured and how to do it but I would look at these configuration files and see if there are any clues for the context menu configuration (if it's possible).

Read the linked page and did some more searching, but still came up with nothing helpful. Sad

Sylvander,
Have you asked on the BoxPup thread?

Which version of BoxPup are you using? I'll download the latest today and have a look.
