search & (possibly) find
xubuntu using thunar as file manager. since the the use of a hammer is a simple task – as long as you know which end to grab – i expect the same of thunar…
used to do a ctrl-f to popup a search. i tried and put in a pattern… but this does nothing than mark files in the actual view which match the pattern. ok, i grabbed the wrong end…
right mouse button click offers a context menu with a search option. this opens catfish a simple and powerful frontend for locate and find.
do not use patterns like *.iso because catfish is searching for that exact pattern. since the asterisk ‘*’ is not allowed in file/folder names it makes only sense if we are performing a full text search for this pattern.
do search for .iso if you want to find all iso files
it seems that regular expressions are not supported
