It is also integrated into Konqueror and Dolphin, under the name "Find File". A search is configured in a 3-tab window. The Name/Location tab Specify a file name use wildcards * and ? in the name Specify a starting directory Decide whether you want to also search sub-directories Specify whether the search should be case-sensitive The Contents tab Select the file type to be search Specify the search term it can be useful to have '*' set in the file name field in the Name/Location tab Select case sensitivity Should binary files be searched? NB A "Contents" search is necessarily much slower than a filename search, so be as specific as you can when defining it. The Properties tab Find files by creation date Limit the criteria by age - e.g. "during the previous 2 hours" Find files by size - e.g. "At Least 2 MB" Limit the result to files owned by a specific user or group All criteria set will be honoured in your search - you are not limited to the specifications in one tab, so you could search for "any file in the directory /home or any directory below that, containing the word "Silkstone" which must be capitalized, and is owned by the group "Accounts".
