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).

 Ideas (implemented)

 by uddw on: Jan 13 2005

Just in case anyone is interested - I wrote a quick and dirty patch for kio-locate today, which groups the found files into directories. To get an impression, please see the screenshots (and the code) on http://fred.hexbox.de/kio-locate-fs/

The second screenshot was made after clicking on the /opt-dir in the first screenshot.

It's not too fast and the treeview doesn't work right, but it works somewhat.

I have sent this to the author of kio-locate, but maybe a few other opinions might be helpful.

Hi! I like your ideas very much and have incorporated them (to some point) in the new release. Thanks a lot!

As the current way is not perfect for sure, I would like to hear some opinions about this collapsing of multiple hits!

Please tell, what to improve!

this latest release is very cool, collapsing of the hits - nice work.

pitty it won't be able to do real-time search, isn't it?

I am waiting for some google-bar like search for files, which can narrow the showed files in the current map and its submaps... KIO-locate is nice, and should stay, but this is even better. mostly, you almost know where the file is: ~/documents, or ~/pictures... but where exactly? :D

There is quite some room for speed optimizations for kio-locate, but it will usually be far from realtime. Search-as-you-type isn't possible at all with konqueror.
But it could possibly be made much, much faster, if kio-locate would create an indexed database from the locate db and use this for searching, because the locatedb can be searched only sequentially.

Anyway, I also hope that kio-locate is just a small step towards an indexing search engine.
What happened to all the ideas that came up a while ago like on LinuxTag '04?

yeah, good question. I hope they still work on that... but it won't be there before KDE 4 anyway, so I guess there is plenty of time to make it?!?!?

 Make it compile

 by arminstraub on: Jan 18 2005

Under certain circumstances you have to add the line

#include <algorithm>

to kio_locate.cpp for compiling it. This will be added in the next release. Thank you Francesco di Cugno for pointing this out.

This is wonderful, and the collapsing of results is fantastic! I really hope to see this included in future versions of KDE.

 install problem

Nice app.
Any undocumented tricks for getting this to work?

unpacked to /usr/share/apps
make install

...with and without #include as suggested above.

No complaints during compilation, but entering "locate:text" (no quotes) goes to the default search engine, if one is defined, or "protocol not supported".

You have to install it to the correct prefix with something like
./configure --prefix=$(kde-config --prefix)
Otherwise KDE won't the the desktop file which registers the new kioslave.

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
