Everything, gnu Find and Catfish


Using everything on windows makes me efficient. It searches things in a jiffy and does not affect my thought flow. Until recently, I had this problem of finding such tool in linux.

There are two kinds of indexers, one which just indexes the document metadata and other other which indexes the content of the document (processor intensive). For the latter, one would require libraries that can handle various file formats.

A few good tools are:
beagle dev stopped?
strigi comes with KDE
recoll high reccomendations

I use GNU FIND via the Catfish interface for metadata indexing.
