Strigi Desktop Search

Here are the main features of Strigi:
very fast crawling
very small memory footprint
no hammering of the system
pluggable backend, currently clucene and hyperestraier, sqlite3 and xapian are in the works
communication between daemon and search program over an abstract interface with two implementations: DBus and a simple unix socket. Especially the DBus interface makes it very easy to write client applications. There are a few sample scripts in the code using Perl, Python, GTK and Qt. Writing clients is so easy that any Gnome or KDE app could implement this.
Aditionally, there is a simple interface for implementing plugins for extracting information. We'll try to reuse the kat plugins, although native plugins will have a large speed advantage.
Strigi also has calculation of sha1 for every file crawled which allows for fast finding of duplicate files.


- Path fixes to the build system the benefit of windows users (sengels)
- Clean up of class ArchiveReader
- Support for LZMA compressed streams in archives, notably .deb and .rpm
- Remove preceding ./ from file path in tar archives.
- Make parsing ar and deb files easier to abort: useful in e.g. Dolphin
- Better method of removing deleted file from the CLucene
- Do not tokenize the URL in the index to improve polling speed
- Fix the bz2 header check: more bz2 archives are recognized (pino)
- Fix infinite loop on parsing SGI image files
- Fix reading of zip files without central directory.

Oh yes, you can!
That's why it is already included in Kubuntu.
Check out 'Desktop search' in your system settings!

That depend if you are using kde4.2 you can't. Strigi is disabled because the only soprano backend provided is redland and strigi want sesame2.

Their are licence and packaging management problem.

Of course you can certainly run strigi on KDE 4.2.
The client can be started with 'strigiclient'.
The default backend is CLucene. If strigi is run in combination with Nepomuk the backend is soprano. Soprano uses either redland or sesame. There are no license problems whatsoever.

I am confused:
Please will someone explain what each of the following does and how each relates to the others.

I have an idea about some of them but a single clear sentence saying what it does would be great!

All I can find on Google is tech-talk. There's precious little that would be adequate for a use case description or user story:

The use case/story I am struggling with (on KDE4.2, on SuSE 11.1)
The desktop user or administrator needs to understand what to install and what combinations will provide which benefits and which weaknesses, so that they can have a desktop search that meets their needs. OR a predetermined default that 'just works', with sensible defaults.

I am also somewhat concerned, if the search interaction requires a user to open Dolphin and type in 'Nepomuksearch:<searchterm>'. I hope there is are better and easier ways to search.

I had hoped that there would be a search plasmoid or a keyboard shortcut (like Beagle) but I can't find anything.

Please feel free to enlighten me as to how dumb I've been. As a UX architect I'm used to it ;o)

There actually is a plasmoid/shortcut for strigi. Krunner does the trick, but it needs some tweaking before it's pratical. (If you don't know what Krunner is, just press Alt-F2 and see what happens.)

First, make sure that the necessary backends are installed. In Kubuntu, I needed to install plasma-runner-addons. Then I enabled the strigi plugin in the krunner settings, set the default style to "Task Oriented", changed the positioning to "Free floating window", and changed the default shortcut from Alt-F2 to Alt-Space in System Settings.

Now, Krunner will behave like Katapult from KDE 3, but with a special twist.. it not only launches programs, it performs Strigi searches too!

If you like this functionality, help me request this as a KDE default.

 Strange strigi reindexation

 by snvv on: Nov 22 2010
Score 50%

I have a very serious problem.
If I add a new file into an indexed folder then strigi reindex all files in the folder. During the reindexation process there is no way to search old indexed files (in that folder).

This should be a bug or a very very annoying feature.

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.
