How do you search for file content?

Post by danielson on Wed Dec 07, 2016 1:16 pm

Windows has a few good search programs like Copernic (pro not free) and Filelocator (free version is decent) but what about Linux? What app or how do you search the content of your files (not just file name)?

For some reason Catfish does't want to search Dropbox folder on my Windows side.

Recoll does, and after initial scan (pretty fast on my system) it does an excellent job at it! Smile

Apologies to Catfish - just found more options.

Still prefer Recoll which also gives a preview with some context.
