fsrunner for KRunner

   0.7.5  

KDE Improvement

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.

 This is incredible

 
 by Nirf on: May 14 2009
 
Score 50%

This is amazing and needs to become part of KDE. Back in KDE 3 they had a pathetic version of this, it only indexed ~/. I remember thinking how obvious it was to add other directories and how useful it would be then. You have one-upped me, by adding this and regular expressions as well. Top notch job, this will really enhance my computer use day-to-day. If its cool with you, I want to email the KDE people (or perhaps post somewhere) and suggest this be part of KDE 4.3.

Glad you like it, and go ahead, I haven't had much time to work on it lately, but it's a simple idea.

I had some more things I wanted to add/change internally that hasn't been done, but it's been working flawlessly for me and I haven't had any bugreports.

I'm not sure what you mean on the web page regarding the action system or whatever it is. I haven't had any problems. One thing that I thought was nice though: after I installed this, my friend told me that nepotomuk was supposed to do something similar. I intensely dislike that software and I think what you wrote is much better. However one thing that they had that was excellent (which might not be that hard to implement) is exclusion rules. I don't know if they would be global, or an a directory by directory basis, but in any form they would help. E.g. you could have an exclusion rule for .* because those are hidden files that you generally don't want to search. A personal example: I wanted a file called Biophysics.lyx. So I type in bio*lyx. I get the hit I want, but I also got Biophysics.lyx.emergency. This (and file names ending with tildes) are software saving backup copies of what you are working with, and again generally you don't want to search these. Just a suggestion I think is useful and relevant. Cheers!

The action system is disabled, core functionality for extra buttons for cut/copy/paste/open with etc is there, but disabled as it always broke for me for no good reason.

Exception rules are there for files, just not user configurable. And for directories adding a subdirectory with different settings will override parent directory.

Well, by exception rules I meant user configurable ones naturally.For example the .emergency files that Lyx saves are not a standard so it would be nice to configure my own exception rule for that. Run Nepotomuk and look at their advanced configuration to see what I mean. I might (for the time being) try to implement this by going through the source. You said there are already exception rules implemented, where in the source code roughly (what file name) is that happening? would it be easy to add more?

Open dirwatcher.cpp and search for bak, it demonstrates suffix (aka extension), rightRef (last char in filename) and full .filename usage.

 Crashes 4.2.4 krunner

Version 0.7.1 crashed krunner after latest upgrades off Debian Sid. Since the make has no uninstall rule, I found the .so and simply deleted it.

I can try 0.7.2, but ... has anyone else had or fixed this problem?

Here is the command line result of starting krunner with 0.7.2 installed:

ASSERT: "idx >= 0 && idx < s" in file /usr/include/qt4/QtCore/qvarlengtharray.h, line 100
KCrash: Application 'krunner' crashing...

<unknown program name>(32248)/: Communication problem with "krunner" , it probably crashed.
Error message was: "org.freedesktop.DBus.Error.NoReply" : " "Message did not receive a reply (timeout by message bus)" "

Repeated attempt at this can be unpleasant :-)

Unfortunately that doesn't tell me much, could be an issue in kde 4.2.4 if I'm lucky.

 Filters?

 
 by sgls on: Aug 17 2009
 
Score 50%

I really like fsrunner and started using it more and more. One thing that would improve overall experience for me are filters, i.e. the possibility to exclude files matching user-defined patterns from the search results. For example, when searching for notes.txt I usually do not want to find a backup file notes.txt~.

It actually filters backup extensions by default ;), I don't support user defined filters though, and I dont have the time to add that right now.

This is the only filtering going on:

if ((fileInfo.suffix() == "bak") || (fileInfo.fileName().rightRef(1) == "~") || (fileInfo.suffix() == "old") || fileInfo.fileName() == "lost+found")
continue;

 KDE 4.4 KRunner crash

Hi, I've been using FSRunner for some months now ad it's been great so far. After the KDE(mod)4.4 update KRunner keeps crashing on me. Since FSRunner is the only non-standard plugin for KRunner i installed, may it be the cause for these crashes? I can of course provide you with the crash infos.

It IS FSRunner fault. Disabling it solves the problem. Recompiling it does not have any effect

Post and issue with as much information as possible here:
http://code.google.com/p/fsrunner/

It'd increase your chances of getting it fixed a lot if you build it in debug mode and get me a console output of that as well. See build-debug.sh, it's in the svn tree.

Please note that I'm working a lot of hours lately, so excuse the delay on replies/lack of updates.

There are two thinks that KRunner misses, IMHO. One is themability, the other is FSRunner. Why don't you candidate FSRunner for integration in KDE? I personally think it would be nice, and you wouldn't have to worry about it.

Well, I can't ask for it to be included and then stop maintaining it. That's not how things work.

Fsrunner also has some limitations, especially with symlinks, that I'd like to see fixed before inclusion.

You might want to feature request this kind of feature, and then link them to fsrunner for inspiration/code.

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
