I am not talking about something like CD/DVD catalogin software. I have 4 internal hdd's with files/appz/images I want to search for at anytime. How to do it in Linux ? Anyone with solution ? Gnome Catalog doesn't seem to work the way I want
I think you'll find gThumb handy with images.
As a more generic approach, just open the Terminal and learn how to use find command, especially with the -iname option.
There is a lot of advantages working directly with the text terminal, it is worth to learn indeed
And after that, use aliases for your favorite image viewer, and code a little shell script to encaspulate several commands and shorten the text you type...
BTW If you haven't got millions of files on your file system, search on the fly should be very quick.
usual find examples:
- Code: Select all
find ~ -size +100k -name "*Search*.jpg" -print
find / -type f -iname "*search*.jpg" -print 2> /dev/null
