I seem to have gtkdialog2 and gxmessage. So maybe something else is incompatible. It appears to run, just when you do a search it doesn't actually search. And the icons are missing - but that doesn't matter Smile

Could it be that 1.x use busybox instead of bash. Busybox-find could be stripped compared to the full bash-find.

When push search-button pfind builds a find-command in /tmp/pfind-execfind. Look at this file, and try to run in a terminal.

find -P "/" -maxdepth 100 -user root -size +0k -size -1000M -iname "*don*"
returns:
find: invalid predicate `-P'
If I remove the -P, I get
find: invalid -size type `M'
If I remove the size thing it works (incredibly quickly too!)

I'm not sure what all this means, but according to the packages list I have
bash-3.0 and busybox-1.01.

If it is easy, you might want to add an error message to your gui, as it just says it hasn't found any files, when presumably it didn't even search - sometime someone will have problems because something is broken in their install; it won't just help crazy people like me that try to run new programs in old OSs.

First. You are not using version 0.8. Version 0.8 and 0.9 has a different output, but still the -P will be there. It defines how to handle symbolic links. I'm absolutely no guru, but it seems that 'find' act different i 1.x than in 2.x.

Pfind is built for Puppy 2.14, and version 0.9 is built for Puppy 2.15. I have no plans making this available world wide. It is after all just a simple bash-script. This is why it only is 17kb. Wink

Hi, I've tried installing version 0.9 but nothing happens when you click on the pfind icon in Dotpups.
If I go bacvkto version 0.7 it is fine and version 0.8 also works (although it says it's version 0.7)
I'm using Rudy Puppy 2.13 Any thoughts? thanks
P.S. am having the same trouble with Pbackup, see
http://murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?p=101734#101734

Hi, having a bit of trouble here. Version 1.9.5 seems fine but 1.9.6 -1.9.8 all install okay but will not run, nothing appears on the screen.

You have to install the new gtkdialog3 which is at:

ftp://ibiblio.org/pub/linux/distributions/puppylinux/pet_packages-2/gtkdialog-0.7.18.pet

Incase you haven't already.

Can I exclude say,
/root/mnt
from a
/
search?
so it doesn't go off searching on my samba mounts?

The find-command has the parameter -xdev (do not dive into other filesystems). I'll make an option for Pfind 1.0. Other good ideas?

Idea In the upcoming Pfind 1.0 you can set a list of paths you want to include for search. This list can be set in config-file to be the default searchpath. Together with the option to stay inside current filesystem, it should be doable, making whatever searchpath you want. But there is no exclude-list.
