file search in nautilus and catfish not working debian wheezy 64bit


I have a wheezy 64bit.File search does not return any results.Catfish does not start when opened.It is a new installed system.Catfish when opened in terminal gives error:
/usr/bin/catfish: line 2: fg: no job control

What should I do?
How to solve these two issues?

Re. catfish, Can you show the entire dialogue that you typed in the console in order to get the error message you have listed in your post. Do you get the same message whatever you search for?

Have a look at the output of
Code:
man catfish
to make sure that catfish accepts a command with no arguments. It may offer other commands that might show if catfish is installed correctly.

You give no details so it's difficult to offer suggestions.
What were you looking for? What did you do to find it? How did the system respond?

Adding all tags...
Shutting down nautilus-gdu extension

Can you at least give one (1) example of a folder you searched. How exactly did you search for this folder? And what is the output of
Code:
ls -l <name of folder you are searching>

I recently had a similar problem with catfish - I do not use nautilus.

Could the following catfish bug report be relevant ?

The reason for the failure to find files is quite simple but so far the solution is not.

In Debian/Wheezy using the File Browser/Nautilus the search utility within the browser will only find files that belong to the signed on user.

If the file being searched for belongs to you it will find it if not it will not. It is that simple.

I have checked the "+" and "-" options to see if ownership can be removed as a requirement.

I have tried preferences within file browser/nautilus and found no applicable options.

In Debian Version 6 one could search the entire file system for "readme" files and then right click for properties to see what application it applied to but no more.

There is no more right click for Gnome 3 users.

Should anyone know why ownership is a requirment for a file to be found please respond.
