I am using Catfish. The locate backend wont find text within files. I already ran "sudo updatedb". What is wrong?
locate does not find text within files, it only searches for filenames. Probably you need to use another backend if you want Catfish to find text within files.

In Catfish 0.8.2 you can activate the topmost right-hand corner menu and then Fulltext Search. This will allow you to search for strings within files.
