PostPosted: Wed 23 Sep 2015, 10:05    Post subject:  locate-GUI-2.0
Subject description: Graphical User Interface for the locate find utility
 

locate-GUI is a simple GUI for the locate find utility. This was previously called locator-1.1.

The script has been upgraded to include clickable links. locate-GUI will create a database of all your mounted drives and partitions when you click on the disk button. To search, type in your search criteria and press enter. If your search has been successful you will have a list of /path/filenames. Double click on the result to execute.

Please take the time to read the help.

Fatdog64-700 version. http://smokey01.com/fd700/packages/locate-GUI-2.0-x86_64-1.txz

32bit version: http://www.smokey01.com/software/utility/locate-GUI-2.0-x86.pet

The 32bit version includes the locate and updatedb files.

Fatdog64-700 has them included.

Enjoy.

locate-GUI-2.0 pet dowloaded.
Find all my ISOs on my windows partition is the challenge (pfind does it easily). Just for test and adoption, if efficient. Smile
"please wait, updating database... "
Ok, here are the results, even in the trash box.
This tool does its job. I had a lot of iSOs in this trashbox. Deleted now.

pfind is a great utility, I use it quite often but it can be a bit slow and cause a lot of disk thrashing each time you use it. As I said somewhere I have about 7TB of disk space across four drives and 15 partitions. This takes about 10-15 minutes to index then about 2-3 seconds to find files.

Once you figure out RegEx it becomes very powerful but the basic method is fine. the .iso search would have no problems finding all of your ISO's just like .mp3 will find all all your mp3 files. If you have .mp3 and .MP3 just do a -i mp3 and it will ignore case.

Glad you like it, enjoy
