  I am wondering if there is a software which performs google's search
on (and only on) the files of a desktop running debian linux? I am aware
of utilities such as grep, find, locate etc, but prefer a google's
interface. For ex, I can seach for a string, and then click on the link
to access the file etc.,

Have you checked for a "Find" or "Search" feature in your desktop's file
management program?


I use KDE and konqueror is the file manager I use. I could not find any such functionality in konqueror. I can shift to some other file manager, if it serves the purpose.

thanks for the reply.
