Description:

This is kio-locate for KDE4.

After switching to KDE4 I really missed this add-on. Since it was not maintained any longer I had to port it myself :-)

kio-locate is a KDE I/O Slave for the locate command. This means that you can use kio-locate by simply typing in konquerors address box.

You can e.g. type "locate:index.html" to find all files that contain "index.html" in their name. There's even more: You can use kio-locate in all KDE applications, that accept URLs. Just take a look at the screenshots.

Thanks to Armin Straub, Tobi Vollebregt and Michael Schuerig for their great work.

Well, surely not by me.

I haven't switched to 5 yet and don't plan to do so in the near future.

Anybody wanting to take over the project is welcome.

To have a working and clean install in Debian, do the following:

• Apply the change of the comment before this comment
• mkdir build; cd build
• cmake -DCMAKE_BUILD_TYPE=Release -DCMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX=/usr ..
• make
• sudo checkinstall --pkgname kio-locate

If sudo is not installed, you can use su -c "…". If checkinstall is not found, it has to be installed from the package manager (sudo apt-get install checkinstall).

Compilation fails with GCC 4.7, you need to include <unistd.h> in locater.cpp

Thanks for the notification. I had never bothered to check whether the online help is accessible in khelpcenter. I have now just uploaded version 0.5.3 which fixes this.

Maybe there is a bug in kio_locate.kcfg?

<default code="true">i18n("(%1 Hits) %2")</default>

In my search results appears the String I18N_ARGUMENT_MISSING.

The exact steps I did to install kio-locate.

- I downloaded 120965-kio-locate-0.5.1.tar.gz in my home directory
- tar -xvpf 120965-kio-locate-0.5.1.tar.gz
- cd kio-locate-0.5.1
- mkdir build && cd build
- cmake -DCMAKE_BUILD_TYPE=Release -DCMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX=/usr ..
- make
- su
- make install
- run Konqueror
- type into the adress bar locate:/index.html
- I get several grouped results with a green folder icon and a title like

(670(I18N_ARGUMENT_MISSING) Treffer) /usr(I18N_ARGUMENT_MISSING)

As you can see, I am using German localisation, but this also happens in the English version.

My distribution is Gentoo, and I am using KDE 4.5.4 with Qt 4.7.1.

What else could be useful?

Please can you add the greek translation that i have uploaded here ? :
http://www.mediafire.com/file/n2nindyzg2a/el.po

I cant compile it with the translation, is a makefile missing in the /po folder ?

Report

I haven't worked on the translations yet, the 'po' folder is still the one from KDE3. I will provide an update within a few days which will also support building the translations (including yours :-)
