kio-locate is a KDE I/O Slave for the locate command. This means that you can use kio-locate by simply typing in konquerors address box.

You can e.g. type "locate:index.html" to find all files that contain "index.html" in their name. There's even more: You can use kio-locate in all KDE applications, that accept URLs. Just take a look at the screenshots.

Many thanks to Tobi Vollebregt who has been improving kio-locate as a participant of Googles "Summer of Code". Thank you very much!


kio-locate (0.4.5) 2006-02-05 -- Armin Straub

* Search hits with non-ascii characters in the file name always showed up
with invalid size/owner/group information (fixed by Johan Billing).
* kio-locate should now compile with gcc-4.1_beta (fixed by Jan Jitse
* Updated to bksys 1.5.1.

kio-locate (0.4.4) 2005-10-19 -- Armin Straub

+ Warn if locate (or whatever is selected) is not installed (suggested
by Axel K. Braun).
* Use slocate and rlocate as default when available (suggested by Nicolas
* Closed a bug preventing the display of items having the same prefix
(reported by Takis).

 truncated tarball

I love kio-locate, but the tarball for this version seems to be truncated somehow. Output from tar -xzf kio-locate_0.4.4.tar.gz is:

gzip: stdin: unexpected end of file
tar: Unexpected EOF in archive
tar: Unexpected EOF in archive
tar: Error is not recoverable: exiting now

I have uploaded the tarball again (the last upload was only partial because my modem connection broke). Thanks for pointing me to this issue! Hope it works now!

Can you add a kio-slave for slocate too?

 Re: slocate

If installed, slocate is used automatically since this very version (see ChangeLog). A new kio-slave is therefore not needed.

Of course you can choose in the settings if slocate should be used or not manually as well.

 trouble with scons

 by Hintzy on: Jan 11 2006
Score 50%

I loved using kio-locate on my MDV 2005LE box, but when I did a major hardware upgrade and installed MDV 2006 (x86_64), I get this error when I try to run scons:

$ scons configure prefix=/usr
Traceback (most recent call last):
File "/usr/bin/scons", line 143, in ?
import SCons.Script
ImportError: No module named SCons.Script

Any ideas? I've already posted on the Mandriva Club forums about this and have gotten no response. Kio-locate is incredibly useful and I'd love to have it back!

 not able to install

I downloaded kio-locate_0.4.5-1_i386.deb from http://arminstraub.de/browse.php?page=programs_kiolocate&lang=en . But I am unable to install it on Debian Sid running kde 3.5.2. The exact errors are

The website http://arminstraub.de/browse.php?page=programs_kiolocate&lang=en does not tell where to report the problems. So I have previously reported the problem to debian-user mailing list. I have not received any response from the developers on that list. So I am posting it here. The corresponding thread can be found at

This error occurs because I build the package some time ago, when kdelibs4c2 had not been replaced by kdelibs4c2a. Unfortunately, I am not using Debian any more, so I don't know how to update the package on my machine.

Perhaps someone can send me an updated deb file? Since the sources already contain the necessary files, creating the deb file should be as simple as fakeroot debian/rules binary provided all development packages are installed.

I think it's due to this call: meinproc --check --cache index.cache.bz2 index.docbook

This works when run as root, not when running under fakeroot, g*d knows why. Anyway, building as root (i know, i know, it's not nice) works fine on Debian etch.

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.
