I sometimes spend time in the standard classic gnome GUI in
debian wheezy, and today I wanted to search for files containing some text in a certain folder.
I tried to do it the windows way by going to the folder I wanted to search in, clicking on "Search" and typing in the text. But when I press "Enter" all I see is a bar saying "Search Results", with the location I'm searching in and a little
+ icon to add criteria to my search. There's no results...
To confirm it's not finding anything I created a folder called
abc on the desktop and placed a file called
text into it. I then double-clicked the folder, clicked on
search, typed "text" and got a blank results page (with only the aforementioned "Search Results" bar and an option to add other criteria).
Is this a bug, permission issue or a bad feature? And what's the workaround?
