Question Equivalent tool to search functions in Caja, Nautilus, & Nemo?


Hi.

Is there an equivalent search tool to the ones built into Caja, Nautilus, & Nemo? That can for example search within your main Photo folder (also looks into all sub folders by default) to find all photos with 2016 in the title. Then you can right click on the search results and copy these to a new folder on your desktop.

I love PCManFM but this is one major feature it lacks.

Thanks.

The PCManFM built-in search feature when setup via file-manager-actions works after installing the 'libfm-modules' package. It's decent.
