Indexing service for Gnome or KDE?
i have assited a friend to recover from a hard disk failure, and we now have thousands of files to check.
i would liek to find out if there is a tool for searching within files for strings; just as well as through photos meta data.
is there such a tool that works in conbination to Gnome or KDE?
thanks very much,
On the command line, you could use the find command, along with locate, grep, even strings. It's just how you want to take the approach. Now besides from the command line, check out this link - https://help.ubuntu.com/community/FindingFiles
That may help you also.
thanks for the links
i have found recoll
which seems to do some of the work.
is there any other option - anything that integrates better with Gnome?
How about this one?
That's all I know of, besides Gnome-DO, but I'm not even sure if that indexes files.
It really depends on what do you want to do with the files. The tools above can help. The "file" command also can tell you what's inside a file.
You can also use "identify" from the imagemagick suite and "midentify" from the mplayer package to identify image files and videos.
