Bodhi 2.0.1 - "Run Everything" does not locate files as documented
 
Looking at the quick start documentation included with the Bodhi 2.0.1 installation it states:

Quote:

One of the primary purposes of Run Everything is to locate files of any type on your system, whether they are text, image or even application files.
It does not work for me. Is there something that needs to be done to get it to work?

Found at least a partial solution to my question. The package "everything-tracker" needs to be installed to have a file locate capabilitity in Run Everything.

After installing this package and restarting Enlightenment, I now have the ability to access recently used files in Run Everything. But the caveat appears to be the recently used file must be accessed through Run Everything. That is, if a file is opened by way of the File Manager (pcmanfm), Run Everything will not know about it and does not show up as a recently used file.

Still trying determine how to setup Run Everything to locate any file, not just recently used files.

I'd recommend opening up a thread on our user forums or dropping a message to the E mailing list - I personally only use run everything for launching applications so I lack experience using it as an application finder.
