I looked at KFind & read "The KFind Handbook" (enter: help:kfind
in the Konq. "Lo
cation" box), it wasn't much help [Revision 1.20.01 (2004-04-11)]. If you can do what you want in KFind, it isn't documented.
came up empty. There is a [b]~/.kde/share/config/kfindrc[b], it doesn't have any comments.
I agree, use CLI tools -- locate
for the quick & easy stuff, find
& its options for the more complicated. I especially like:
locate <broad_pattern> | grep <fine-tuned_pattern> | less -S
to get something like the "benefits of both worlds".
