Let Catfish search for your files

Filed under
Software

If you need to do any searching for files on a Linux system you know your choices for reliable searching are Beagle, locate, and find. Outside of that the results will vary. The only problem with Beagle is that it can be resource intensive, because it is an indexing search. Find and locate are good but are command line tools. But what if you want to have your cake and eat it too? What if you want to have your choice of search tools and you want that choice to be within a simple graphical interface? That is where Catfish comes in.

Catfish is a simple graphical interface that works with any search tool you have installed. And if you have multiple search tools installed, you can have your choice of which tool to use for the search. Let’s take a look at this very handy search tool.
