Description:

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!




Changelog:

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

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

locate cannot find files in folders of which me or root is not the owner, even if I have full read/write/execute access to that directories - can someone explain that to me please?

If you're using slocate, you may need to set SECURITY="0" /etc/updatedb.conf.

 Case sensitivity

 
 by Yama on: May 22 2005
 
Score 50%

0.4.1 is a noticable improvement, but I don't think the case sensitivity is quite right yet. From my experiments, kio-locate makes a case-insensitive search if there are capital letters in the search term, and a case-sensitive search if the search term is completely lower case. I can force case-insensitive searches to take place every time by adding -i in the Additional Arguments, but this means I can never make a case sensitive search.

The filters seem to work in a similar way: a capital letter makes the filter case-insensitive and no capital letters (all lower-case) makes it case sensitive.

In other words, the cases of search terms and filters work oppositely to how they should.

Is anyone else experiencing this?

You are absolutely right. That's a really stupid bug. I hope it is gone in the new version.

Thank you very much!

First off this is awesome! Great work.

I'd like to tweak the defaults a little and I'm not sure if it's possible. I'd like it to not be case sensitive by default. And I wonder is there a way to specify certain directories only to search by default. For ex, I'd like to set it up for some users that it only searches their home and maybe a windows My Documents dir on a fat32 partition by default, without them having to specify the paths during the search.

Also, I'm just curious why + is used as a wild card instead of *.

But again great work thx again.

> I'd like it to not be case sensitive by default

Shouldn't this already be the default behaviour - at least if you specify your search in lowercase?

> is there a way to specify certain directories only to search by default

This is currently not possible, but should be easy to implement in a new version.
For now you can only adjust your locate databases according to a single user (but then this user won't be able to search outside his home directory or the FAT partition).

> I'm just curious why + is used as a wild card instead of *

It is not used instead, as you can (and should?) use * when possible. But * is already used by konqueror itself (at least in some KDE versions). E.g. in file dialogs there should no problem to use *.

Thanks for your input.

Now you can use the whitelist to achieve your goal. Hope it helps!

I downloaded the sources and, after spotting a "debian" subdirectory, proceeded to do dpkg-buildpackage. I run Debian/Unstable. I thought this was more of a (K)Ubuntu package, but I gave it a go anyway...
It complains about a dependency with python2.4; however, python 2.4.1 is there. You might want to fix that for regular, not-Ubuntu debian users. Ignoring the dependency with -d works fine, and it looks like the DEB package was installed fine. Great tool, extremely useful :)

 Konq default search

 
 by google01103 on: Jul 21 2005
 
Score 50%

As suggested I used locate as my default search engine but if multiple entries are searched for nothing is returned as the actual search goes from "kat home" to "locate:kat+home"

Anyway around this?

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.
