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.


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

Fix bug causing crashes when conflicting with other krunner plugins.

There are a number of issues which needs to be corrected in the bugtracker home page.
Is fsruner a dead project?

I haven't had time to work on it at all for some time. But another person has joined the project and fixed multiple issues.

 kubuntu package?

That's a great piece of software, I've been looking for exactly this for a long time. Is there a Kubuntu package anywhere?

One more comment: it seems to me that the search matches only the beginning of the filename, it would be great if it could match arbitrary substrings.

Yes there is a PPA from Sam Rog on Launchpad Site:

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:samrog131/ppa
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install plasma-runner-fsrunner

that's all ;) thx to Sam Rog

(tested on kubuntu 10.04 KDE 4.5.1)

 Exactly what I was looking for

This program rocks! It puts Nepomuk to shame (granted, Nepomuk tries to do a lot more... but it should at least get filename indexing right).

My only major complaint is the lack of a user-configurable ability to exclude directories. I have one directory with about one million books stored each as a text file with its name as a title, so I tend to get lots of these in results, sometimes getting in the way. I've had to game the system a little and fiddle with exact depths and priorities to get these guys out of the way.

Otherwise, great work! I agree that this should be in KDE by default. Not acceptable to have this essential feature included in Windows but not in KDE! Nepomuk isn't up to the task yet, at least not until the KRunner search does common-sense things like listing filename matches before content matches (sometimes I can't even get it to list filename matches at all).

I've said it before and I say it again. I have no idea why this runner has been so neglected by KDE users and distributions. Its power and usability are far superior to Nepomuk's. It does less, but it does it much much better. It's way faster, at least on my laptop with a decent SSD. It's simple and doesn't return hundreds of useless search results like Nepomuk does.
I recently switched from 4.5 to 4.9 and found fsrunner to cause krunner to crash very often. I can't work well withour this item, please fix it and bring it back!

How do you like Plasma 5?
 The best KDE Desktop ever.
 Definitely a nice improvement.
 Not decided yet. Haven't tried it yet.
 I do not like some of the changes.
 KDE is taking the wrong way.
 I am still sticking with KDE 3.5.
 I have no opinion, but wanted to vote anyway.
