PostPosted: Fri 19 May 2017, 21:12    Post subject:  pfind 4.18
Subject description: Can't find "personal files".
 

I'm using Quirky 1.0 and I've had a long standing problem using pfind to find music files or any personal file under mnt/home. System files are no problem. I like pfind because it provides the option of playing those mp3 files once found. I've revisited this problem and have tried to resolve it but am not having any success. I called pfind using the terminal and this is what I get:

# pfind -v
Pfind 4.18

# pfind

** ERROR **: GtkDialog: Could not find the dialog description in the environment variable ‘MAIN_DIALOG’.
aborting...
/usr/local/pfind/pfind: line 608: 28694 Aborted gtkdialog3 is /u sr/sbin/gtkdialog3

** ERROR **: GtkDialog: Could not find the dialog description in the environment variable ‘MAIN_DIALOG’.
aborting...
/usr/local/pfind/pfind: line 442: 29014 Aborted gtkdialog3 is /u sr/sbin/gtkdialog3


# gtkdialog2 -v
gtkdialog version 0.59.8

# gtkdialog3 -v
gtkdialog version 0.7.20 (C) 2004, 2005, 2006, 2007 by Laszlo Pere


Any help is appreciated. Thanks for looking.

I believe there's an option to search inside a folder.
Using terminal....

Code:
pfind  -d  /mnt/home


or whatever the folder path is.
Then type part of music file name.

I made a pfind plus package to search inside a folder.
It's for 64 bit fatdog, but open it up and repackage it
if you're interested in a pet package .

# pfind -d /mnt/home/Music/Beatles
find: `/mnt/home/Music/Beatles': No such file or directory

** ERROR **: GtkDialog: Could not find the dialog description in the environment variable 'MAIN_DIALOG'.

/usr/local/pfind/pfind: line 474: 25462 Aborted gtkdialog3 is /usr/sbin/gtkdialog3

Is there something wrong with gtkdialog3? Cause obviously the path, directory and file exist! I have SearchMonkey installed as well, and it works fine. I even updated pfind and still no success.

# pfind -v
Pfind 4.24

You could be right about gtkdialog3 not working right .

Barry includes both compiled versions of gtkdialog3 and gtkdialog4
in his distros of puppy even though this adds to the size of the download.

But possibly he has started to drop the compiled version of gtkdialog3 and just make
a link to gtkdialog4??? This would save space in download , but there is
the danger of incompatibility.

Installed bulldog-finder.pet and this results:

# bulldog-finder
cat: /tmp/bulldog/recent-list-final: No such file or directory
/usr/local/bin/bulldog-finder: line 714: -c: command not found
#

gui popup says:

Sorry

No text string entered.

No mention of gtkdialog unlike pfind.

I handle gtkdialog differently than Zigbert.

I search for gtkdialog4 and if it can't find it I fall back to using gtkdialog3
