Today I found a wonderful search tool. It's called Recoll.

Enjoy it!



I forgot to send some details:

Recoll finds keywords inside documents as well as file names.

It can search most document formats.

It can reach any storage place: files, archive members, email
attachments, transparently handling decompression.

One click will open the document inside a native editor or display an
even quicker text preview.

The software is free, open source, and licensed under the GPL.


General features

Easy installation, few dependancies. No database daemon, web server,
desktop environment or exotic language necessary.

Will run on most Unix-based systems

Qt 4 GUI, plus command line, Unity Lens, KIO and krunner interfaces.

Searches most common document types, emails and their attachments.

Transparently handles decompression (gzip, bzip2).

Powerful query facilities, with boolean searches, phrases, proximity,
wildcards, filter on file types and directory tree.

Multi-language and multi-character set with Unicode based internals.

Extensive documentation, with a complete user manual and manual pages
for each command.
