comment Find text file containing a given text ignoring new lines and spaces?
Ah, sorry, I missed the *.txt . A textfile however is not necessarily of extension .txt. I am no bash virtuoso, but I would think something like: for file in * do if [ -f "$file" ]... But then there is still the recursive issue :)

Again, this does not work on this string, or any variations of it with white spaces and/or newlines in the middle of it, Only if they appear on whole words.

Mind recursively in files inside a given directory (recursively) For some reason, it also does not work in a flat directory on my system.

Just curious, but did you have the opportunity to test?

See my updated answer. If you do it like that, it cannot fail :). Remove in this case the line Terminal=true, since the command already calls gnome-terminal
