Other tools are available, especially this one : you are somwhere in a directory, you right click your mouse, et choose find. YOU get that search tool. What's its name. I dont understand how to use it .

Tell me the name of that search tool.... and how to use it ?

Sub_title: OK, i will try, however not very clear for me.
 

I explain my job ; i have my ... 500 machines controlled once a year.
My controlling society mails me the reports under pdf format for each one.

I have to open each report to know what machine is concerned.
MY firm is a big one with adobe, pdf, word,excel and tutti quanti

I presume your file manager is rox (usually standard in Puppy). If this is correct, you are talking about rox's built-in search feature. The button to the right of the "expression" field will give you some help on it. There may be more help in the rox manual.

If pfind included build-gettext, then it could open mo files
(if devx file was loaded)



and if it had Run_In_Terminal(which is small script)
then it could open a script in a terminal
window.
Here is how I did it in Bulldog finder...


Code:
funcbtnType0Create8() {
   echo '<button image-position="'$1'" use-stock="true"   tooltip-text="'$(gettext 'Run script in terminal')'">
         <input file stock="gtk-execute"></input>
         <label>"'$(gettext 'Run script')'"</label>
         <action>funcpath</action>              
          <action>/usr/local/apps/Run_In_Terminal/AppRun  "$(cat "$TEMPDIR/roxpath.txt")" &</action>
        </button>'
}

PostPosted: Wed 18 Sep 2013, 20:39    Post_subject: advanced search cut off  

Hello Zigbert,
Thanks for pfind and pfilesearch. Although I usually use pfilesearch, I noticed this about pfind 5.11 in Wheezy 3.5.2.7 and thought I should let you know. Pfind works smoothly, but when "advanced" is selected, the gui does not accommodate it well.
Regards,
Wognath

P.S. thank you very much also for your GtkDialog tips elsewhere [url] http://murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?t=38608[/url]

If you click the upper right corner box for a full sized window, then

the 'Advanced' feature is easier to use.

PostPosted: Thu 17 Oct 2013, 15:03    Post_subject: Problem with pfind and openbox?  

Hi

Have there been any reported problems of using pfind when openbox is the wiindow manager?

I've encountered the same problem with both:
OpenboxPlus 1.6 beta 1 and 1.5.3
and
LxPup13.10 : a Puppy with LXDE

The problem occurs if you search for some files and then when they are displayed you right click on one of them but instead of clicking on one of the right-click menu items you click on the screen behind the menu - pfind crashes.

See screenie from OpenboxPlus installed on Slacko 5.6

Any assistance on how to diagnose what is going wrong would be appreciated - running pfind from the terminal does not produce any error messages when the crash occurs.

Thanks
peebee

I reported a similar problem with openbox and pmusic about a year ago
to Zigbert so he knows about the problem.

The application doesn't crash. It's still possible to quit the app normally.

I wrote Bulldog finder to avoid using pfind in openbox.

Hi Zigbert,

I would like to go on working with Fredo again in Puppys find! Is there any possibility to make this dream come true? Smile

I made a short movie about Fredo

Walter
