I'm looking for a search tool (from Ubuntu 14.04 desktop) or method/command (Terminal) that will allow me to search in filenames for full or partial words, in any order, regardless of capitalization.
Do you know of one?
Here's an example of what I need to do. I know that somewhere under
/home/myusername I have a file whose name contains the words "personal", "income" , "tax" , "state". But I can't remember if the filename is
state personal income tax return.docor
personal Income Tax return - state.docor
income tax return - State - personal.doc.
and I also can't remember if some of the words are capitalized. Also, I have a zillion other files with each of the words in them. So just doing a simple search on one of the words (like only "state", or only "tax") doesn't help me much, because it brings back too many files.
Ideally, I'd like to be able to just type in [income state return] or [state income return] and have it bring back the files with all three words in the file name, regardless of capitalization or the order of the words. A GUI tool would be preferable, but a Terminal method would be OK too.
I've tried Catfish and gnome-search-tool/"Search for Files" -- neither of them seem to work for multiple search terms unless the terms are typed in order of how they occur in the file name, with no other words in between the search terms.
