How can I search one folder with tracker

Asked by Aaron Roydhouse on 2009-06-02

Tracker search tool always searches over all indexed folders. But I only want to search for text in files that are in a single folder. How can I search one folder with tracker?

Normally Nautilus has only simple file name searches. It has no search for file contents. The 'nautilus-search-tool' plug-in fixes both the limited search options in tracker and the limited search options in Nautilus by bringing them together. And it solves the problem of searching one folder with tracker.

This should be a standard install for Ubuntu or built into Nautilus. I was so frustrated with the lack of decent search in Ubuntu until I found this.
