I am dual booting Xubuntu 18.04 and Windows 10. I mainly use Xubuntu and occasionally Windows. To have my files accessible from both operating systems, I store my Documents, Music, etc folders in an NTFS partition and I symlink them to my Xubuntu home directory using ln.

Now, Catfish does not find a file in, e.g. Documents when I search from home directory. However, if I change the directory to Documents it does.

As I understand it, the problem is that Catfish does not follow symbolic links. However, I don't see any option that enables it to follow them. Am I missing something out? How to make Catfish follow symlinks?
