I used to able to using Catfish search for files then right click and be able to delete from the context menu now there is no context menu in Catfish, Is this a known issue or am i missing a package?

Also is there an alternative file search feature/app for Thunar?

Thanks for the reply.

How would I add a search with an option to delete multiple files?

Hi Kev1105,

For catfish 1.4.4-1 (comes with ubuntu 18.04 and LM 19) there is a fix :

with this terminal-command :

Code: Select all

sudo sed -e 's/"key-release-event" handler="on_catfish_window_key_press_event"/"key-release-event" handler="on_catfish_window_key_release_event"/' -i /usr/share/catfish/ui/CatfishWindow.ui
....... this bug was fixed in the package catfish - 1.4.7-1

I replaced catfish with gnome-search-tool, which might do what you want.

Download a .deb file from:
https://pkgs.org/download/gnome-search-tool

Install gnome-search-tool from the .deb.

Then, in thunar:
Menu -> Edit -> config actions -> Search
-- replace "catfish %f"
-- with "gnome-search-tool --path=%f"

That's fixed putting

sudo sed -e 's/"key-release-event" handler="on_catfish_window_key_press_event"/"key-release-event" handler="on_catfish_window_key_release_event"/' -i /usr/share/catfish/ui/CatfishWindow.ui

into the terminal resolved it
Thanks very much.
