fsrunner for KRunner

Description:

FSRunner is a kde runner, the idea is to give you instant access to any file or directory you need. As a lot of time is spend walking through directories, you should never need to walk through 8 directories to get to a location you already know where is.

The homepage at http://code.google.com/p/fsrunner/ has a howto with pictures.

Example usage: you can configure it to scan $HOME, with a depth of 3, and ignore files. And then scan Desktop, with a depth of 1, and include files there. If you have the file Desktop/TODO, you can then write todo in krunner and it will find that file. It also allows using * in searches.

If you've had the action system enabled at all, let me know here or in the bug tracker and I'll get it to usable state. I know it's broken, but I've been busy and I know nobody who uses it.

PLEASE report all problems on http://code.google.com/p/fsrunner/issues/list , if you dont tell me it's broken I can't fix it.

Please vote me up, OR tell me how this isn't practical to you. Because at this point I can't live without it.




Changelog:

Been far too busy for far too long. Atleast getting critical bugfixes now!

Fix bug causing crashes when conflicting with other krunner plugins.

 PKGBUILD for Arch Linux

That's exactly what i was looking for! Nepomuk is imho too bloated and i can't find any purpose for the features it has.

Fsrunner does exactly what i want it to do and it is not a resource hog!

I've created PKGBUILD for Arch Linux, you might want to add it to downlaod links:

http://aur.archlinux.org/packages.php?ID=24539

Keep up the good work!

Thank you :), Added that link to the download list. And bumped version to 0.3.1, actions are still giving me some rare issues.

0.3.1 wont change anything for people using the standard interface, it only disabled actions by default in the task oriented interface.

I'm starting to think it's a krunner problem and not a problem in my code, but they should be working soon.

I dont use them myself, and I dont have that interface enabled, so I dont test that code as much as I should (apperantly).

Thanks!

After testing fsrunner for few hours i've got one problem - everytime i reboot my PC and KDE starts for the first time my CPU and disk usage is very high (one core is @ 100%) for about 1 minute, disabling fsrunner during that time makes CPU and disk usage go low. I guess that's because fsrunner scans disks for changes. The database in .kde4/share/apps/fsrunner is about 500kB so i guess it's not that big (highest depth is set to 3).

I don't know if this is a bug or is it a normal behaviour. Wouldn't it be possible to make fsrunner scan "in background" so that it would just take 1-5% of CPU?

The scanning thread is on nice priority, and ionice is also used.

This however for me takes about 1-2 seconds.

Could you try echo "select count(*) from entries;" | sqlite3 .kde4/share/apps/fsrunner/database.sql and tell me how many entries are in your database?
Also what kind of hardware is this on? Cpu speed/harddrive type or speed would be helpfull.

oh, and dont compile with debugging, it adds a lot of safety checks.

See if that reduces the time it takes, it should, a lot.

Database entries count is 2293.
CPU - Pentium D 2,66GHz (2cores)
HDD - WD Caviar 250GB 7200RPM, SATA II, 8MB cache

I noticed that disabling scan for my mp3 directory on ntfs partition, decreases scan time a lot - to about 2-3seconds.

However i've got another issue, if i have scan set to $HOME, depth 3, files (true), kmail crashes on startup when KDE starts for the first time. Removing $HOME scan entry makes kmail to start without crash.

Ah, yeah, ntfs scanning might take a lot of resources, but that's not really something I can improve, it's ntfs being incredibly inefficient, and even if the scanner is running on low priority the filesystem doesn't have any priority levels, so it will suck up a lot of resources.

Scanning $HOME crashes kmail?.... that seems incredibly odd to me. What filesystem is this? And can you confirm that bug again, the only thing my code does is watch, it shouldn't affect any other program in ANY way.

I'm running a profiler now, and I'll add some code to be nicer on slow filesystems, such as a static pause between directories. Although you might wanna open a bug about that on the google issue tracker so I dont forget.

And the kmail one... I've never seen kmail crash and I've had this on for ages, and I got depth 3 and files true.

Can you turn off scanning files in your mp3 directory and see if that changes the scan speed at all? (I'm hoping it won't).

Also could you do a match for *mp3 and see if it takes forever to pull up?

Just realized there might be some potentional issues with very slow filesystems.

I've tested running scan on mp3 directories with files turned on and off. There is no (or not a big) difference in scan time.

Using *mp3 gives lots of results (as expected) and time before it shows up in krunner is about 2-3seconds, so nothing to worry about.

I'll open any other issues/ideas on the google issue tracker.

a forced delay between folder scans is now implemented in svn, should make scanning your ntfs filesystem usable.

The hardcoded delay is 10ms between directories, if that's too little let me know and I'll up it. You can play with values in dirwatcher.cpp (search for msleep).

I've tested few values and 100ms seems most reasonable for me. CPU usage is about 10-15% in 1core (krunner+mount.ntfs-3g) and disk usage is not so noticeable. I don't mind waiting a little bit longer for fsrunner to look for changes. Maybe msleep could be added as an option so that everyone could set it to the value they want?

I considered adding it as an option, but I dont wanna start putting in options 99% of the population wouldn't know what to do with.

I'll put it at 200ms, it shouldn't really be a problem if a scan is a tiny bit slower on one selected scan folder.

Added some new code now, to cache more in memory during the scan. It upped the memory usage by about 3mb on my system (6000 entries monitored), but it's only during the scan.

And this lowered scan time from 40 seconds (while profiling, running the same scan over and over for testing) to 7 seconds.

Should be worth 3mb extra memory usage during the scan I should think, all memory is cleared afterwards, and no more memory is used.

Had something on my todo list that wasn't in the issue tracker, and forgot it.

Now reduced the scanspeed on my home system from 4-5 seconds to 0.3 in svn. More improvements are coming in as well.

About the kmail issue - looks like it was just a coincidence. I've turned on scan on $HOME rebooted and kmail didn't crash. So sorry for wasting your time and thanks a lot for help!

I look forward to new version of fsrunner. Keep up the good work!

i use the standard cli "find" utilities instead of kfind because it's simply too slow. i hope your widget proves to be as effective. Perhaps if you incorporated the ability to use the various "x"locate databases if they exist your improvement would use less resources?

They will be faster IF you want to search the same place as the locate database.

For example for scanning your entire filesystem for one specific file using locate will likely be more efficient. But for scanning your home directory locate would be rather inefficient, as it would scan through more data, and I would have to filter the data returned.

Also I dont want the entire filesystem poluting my output, as I rarely need to find something in say /usr/share when I search, I like confining my searches to $HOME.

I believe with it's current resource usage it would be very usable on even very very old computers.

New features have been kinda on the back burner, as I've focused on performance, if there is anything you particularly want implemented, make a comment here or in the issue tracker, even if there is an issue open.

Most of the stuff in there is quick enough to do, I just dont get around to it, if I know people are waiting for it it'll be done faster.

new version out with some settings on how searches are handled.

So checkout the configuration menu, cuz it's more or less the only change in this release.

Worth mentioning that I had krunner crash on me once, but I wasn't able to get a backtrace, and I've been trying really really hard to reproduce it. Hopefully it wasn't my runner (I got tons on), and if it was, and someone gets me a backtrace I'll have it fixed within a few hours anyway.

Much appreciated, it's been on my todo list for quite a long time. I've used gentoo exclusively for years, and if you ever find a problem with fsrunner I'm neuron on #gentoo-kde on freenode ;)

Do you like or dislike Ubuntu Unity?
 Yes, unity is alien technology!
 It is less confusing than Gnome 3 default, shell.
 Granny thinks it is much more usable than Gnome 2
 Canonical is embarrasing itself with this split project
 Gnome 3 default shell is much better
 I dislike Unity, Gnome 3 default shell is alien technology!
 None of the above, I like the 2Gb for free and Apple alike behavior. Will post a comment instead
