Pfind will be in Puppy Viz Release Candidate 1
http://puppylinux.org/wikka/CommunityEdition
which will be out in a few days if Warren keeps taking vitamins with his Fosters . . .

Well done guys. Zigbert in particular - this is so needed

I think it should have its own icon "Find"
I have run it OK in Puppy 2.14

We need more testers - run the dotpup released by VariEze as it has the gtkdialog3 (I am assuming)? which is in 2.15 (only available in Beta testing) but not yet in 2.14 or below . . .

In 2.14 when restarting JWM you will Pfind [sic] the program in the menu under "Filesystems"

Viz - everything you heard about it is true
It really is Vizzy

Pfind = Puppyfind
Gnome has G
KDE has K
Why shouldn't we have the P.

I was just looking at Pfind today and thinking
how good it was - whatever the name Smile

shouldn't it be called "fetch"?

Try google for Fetch, and you'll find plenty of programs.
If we want a unique name, PeeFetch would be perfect. Very Happy

I feel the need to be able to exclude some directory structures.

f.e. I have a large HDD connected via linNeighborhood, which starts at MD8818 and which I want to exclude from the search, instead of unmounting it first.

There is no excludelist for Pfind. But you can edit the configfile with a list of included directories (partitions). From the helpfile:
Code:
If wanted, there can be several searchpaths.
Seperate paths with [OR].
searchpath=/root/ [OR] /mnt/hda4/ [OR] /mnt/hdc/


There is also an option 'Search only current filesystem', that exclude all other filesystems.

I'll put the excludelist to the wishlist, and we'll see what happens next.

Hi Zigbert, sadly I've had to leave Puppy for a while (I've found 2.16 rather buggy and never could get the Firefox crashing thing sorted...) so am having to use PClinux at moment. (Boo hisss!)
Anyway, any idea how to use Pfind on PCLinux as it's far better than any other I have come across.
Many thanks
Tony
(Hopefully will return to the kennels later on in the year!)

In PCLinuxOS did you do a HDD install?
Is there a way now to store personal config info?

Hi, yes it's full HDD install as to the rest I am really not sure. I've been so busy I haven't had time to check it out, just use (I mostly use Firefox with very useful extensions and it is very stable on PClinux)
