PostPosted: Tue 21 Apr 2009, 13:05    Post subject:  Pfind alternative Search-Monkey for 4+ series  

I've been using pfind for years now, and yes its a great Puppy program, but I've always dislike programs that stay running if you don't properly shut them down, and Pfind is one of them, actually if you close it the with the window dressings _-X it will stay running until you kill it with Pprocess which is another application with the same flaw. These programs can take a lot of cpu usage if they are left running in background and actually make you system unstable, if you have enough of them running at once.

Anyways Search-Monkey is a perfect complete replacement for Pfind, it runs quicker and shutsdown 100% of the time, so I packaged up 2 versions.

version 1
Pfind-searchmonkey-0.8.1-i386.pet
this version will replace Pfind so you don't have 2 items in your menu doing the same thing, and you won't accidentally run Pfind. Also if you have a quicklaunch like in puppy 4.2 icewm this should also launch Search Monkey, to use this version just click on Pfind in the Menu Wink

Version 2
searchmonkey-0.8.1-i386.pet
This version doesn't touch Pfind at all it will give you another item listing in the menu above Pfind called "#1 Search Monkey - File Finder"

enjoy

Is there a "Howto" to do a search with Searchmonkey? Personnally, I find zigbert's PFind easier to use and it is more likely to locate the file for which I'm searching. I've never had a problem with Pfind not shutting down, or if it doesn't, my hardware isn't adversely affected.

Not it can't its only does that if you use the window dressings or say you restart x server while its running, its uses gtkdialog and thats where the issue is. All gtkdialog programs have the same flaw, you always have to use the cancel/exit button, if not they will stay running.

Jim you sound like you like zigbert or something, Searchmonkey is just as easy as pfind
look at the image provided
where it says 'files' type the name of the file your looking for like pfind
and you can specify where to look the example by typing in the folders section, the example is looking from /root
but if you want to check the whole system and not just in root change it to /
so basically to find pfind you would type like this

Files:Pfind
Folders:/
thats it, Pfinds default settings is the same as using '/'
this one can search a directory, partition, folder etc

Hey, ttuuxx,

Using 4..1.2, I installed ("successfully" says the installation) each pet (one at a time, with no save between) but neither actually starts searchmonkey. Am I doing something wrong or is this a 4.2-specific pet?

All best,
Jake

Hi, ttuuxx,

My steps were to restart JWM, then X, then save and reboot. Even when I searched out the actual searchmonkey app, I still couldn't get it to run. (though it seems to put its files in the right places)

I'm getting the same here with Puppy 4.12.

I d/led the original sources and built them and the same thing as well. Looking through the sources I found that the Main Window was not being shown before the rest of the windows so I added a gtk_widget_show for the main window and rebuilt. It started up okay after that but then it would fault on many other tasks. I noticed it never saved the config.ini file and would fault when asked to do so. There seems to be a path problem. Some of usage of string macros looks a little odd to me. Not sure i feel like sifting through the whole program to debug it though.

Hi ttuuxxx.
Thank you for all you do for puppy.
I downloaded Version one and found that it finds the wanted file in an instant but than freezes while trying to run down the list using my mouse. Is there anything I can do about it?
