I have catfish installed in thunar. If I go to a directory and click on search, catfish pops up and I can search for files with find, locate and slocate. However I can't search with strigi, though it was installed from the VL repository. I think strigi might let me search for a string within a document.
When I type in "strigiclient" from the terminal the strigiclient daemon pops up but nothing seems to work and terminal shows the following error:
QDBusError("org.freedesktop.DBus.Error.Spawn.ChildExited", "Process /usr/bin/strigidaemon exited with status 2")
QDBusMessage(type=MethodCall, service="vandenoever.strigi", path="/search", interface="vandenoever.strigi", member="getStatus", signature="", contents=() )
Anyone have any thoughts as to what I need to do to start strigi indexing my hard drive? I think it would work if I could do this.
