I have been finding it difficult to find the files I need on my system and could use some advice or documentation source. Out of the box using the file manager, I have a search box, but I cannot find settings for it and have no idea how comprehensive the search it is conducting is. Is it recursive in subdirectories? Is it searching the content of files, if so which kinds? etc. I can find very little online about the search engine or how to use it. Some info states that Tracker is included by default. If so, I cannot find it in the applications menu, although there is a file called kernal oops tracker. Is that the app? I'm sure there has to be a better approach than what I have found so far. Any help is appreciated.
Added: I come from Windows world, and my basic expectation is that a file search engine include:
- Search the contents of a file
- File type, dates, file size filters etc.
- A display that tells be what subdirectory a 'found' file is in as well as other relevant file info.
- Some basic documentation on how to use any of these capabilities if they exist
