hello dear all , how to search files in Thunar!? is this possible!?
in the past i used dolphin (in other linux distro) there we were able to do a search.
in the last 10 month .- while using EOS i am not having the option to do so.
any ideas any thoughts .- how to do that - how to achieve this !?
Are you trying to search file names or file contents?
I think people use catfish but I never really liked it because it opens a separate search window instead of doing the search “in situ” like dolphin or nautilus.
I believe you have to install catfish and add a custom thunar action. Too much for a semi-minimalist like me For filename search I use the find command. It works well and fits with my Openbox system.
So I assume you just installed offline.
Recoll should work under XFCE as it did with me under KDE. Try have a look at Make Dolphin Use Recoll "kio_recoll" Installed
I know, I am on KDE, but I do not see why not on XFCE. I am not expert with Thunar but probably you can work out something as I did to search by content from the file manager as I did there.
(And just in case you changed your mind and reinstalled EndeavourOS with KDE online)
I hope this helps.
yay -S catfish
and add custom action… set shortkey to Ctrl+f and do the search…
