another bug:

When I tried a delete from the action menu I was warned with
'no file exists' whereas the right click feature did work.

I see the need of a better example, because you have not understood how it works...... There is no option to filter what files to act on in the execute function. It will act on EVERY file in the list (or the files that are selected). [FILE] should not be replaced by any other word/expression, but has to be included in then execute command as '[FILE]'.

rm [FILE]
will remove every (selected) file in search-result-list.

In pFind 5.10, it looks like this:


Feedback wanted!

Checked in 5.10, and it all seems fine.

You should post pfind 5.10 if you want me to test it this weekend.

thank you for the extra option to copy files which are found. this can really help creating sfs

I use this to create my sfs.
1. change date to the future
2. compile program
3. change back the date
4. pfind all files which created/changed during the compile date then copy (which i used my own script) into newfolder
5. check content of newfolder and make it sfs

obviously this make creating sfs more easy.

btw did this program properly copy "link" ? or does it copy the "linked files" ?

thanks again

Thank you for the sfs-building advice.

The copying does not follow symbolic links. - Links are links.
If you want to copy the actual file, you should use the 'execute command' fucntion instead. cp -H [FILE] /destination/path should give you the file rather than the link.

I see where I was wrong with Action > Execute a command

I was putting a demonstation file in /root and then executing
a command using the filename only. The command would work
because the PWD was /root. Embarassed

It wouldn't work if the demonstration file was located anywhere else.

I tested version 5.10 and everything worked including links ,copying
and moving.

I have a couple of suggestions and a couple of small bugs.

First of all, here is my suggestion for the window to execute a command.
Using FILELIST rather than FILE might make the instructions easier
and a reminder that cut and paste is possible as well.

My second suggestion is to get rid of a feature.

When you first right click on a file on the hitlist, this menu pops up



However 'Send to trash' sends all files to trash. I think it
would be better to use 'Execute a command' --> rm [FILELIST]
to delete all the files simultaneouly.

The first time a user right clicks on a hit list, you have assumed that
the user wants to select all the files. However this isn't a method
that any other program uses to select all the files in a list and it
makes right clicking on an individual file difficult and confusing.

It would be better to go back to the old method of right clicking on
an individual file to hilite it and pop-up a menu that is useful
just for one file.

A couple of small bugs--->

When I do a move of a file on the hitlist, then look at the hitlist
to see if it has changed..... I see that the path is has been changed
correctly, but the filename remains the old name.

_________________________________________

When I do a copy of a file on hitlist, the copy is correctly made
but the hitlist has become blank.

** ERROR **: gtkdialog: Error in line 6, near token 'string': syntax error

aborting...

PostPosted: Thu 10 Jan 2013, 12:51    Post subject: gtkdialog 082 bug  

Ok, solved. It was the gtkdialog problem again which I encountered in the pmusic thread


/usr/sbin/gtkdialog points to /usr/sbin/gtkdialog3

after installation of gtkdialog082 there will be a new gtkdialog in

/usr/local/GtkDialog/082/gtkdialog082

now I copied this gtkdialog082 to /usr/sbin and renamed it to gtkdialog3

...and everything works (so far)

I am going to test this software a bit more - the 5.05 version refused to copy .ppt files. I hope the problem is solved now
