Other / question regarding "start find"
« Last post by Rosika on Today at 10:11:17 AM »
Hi all,  :)

Iīve got a question for better general understanding.

When clicking on "Menu" (the leftmost entry in the taskbar Iīm also presented with a search-field which helps with quickly finding a particular programme/app. Thatīs great.

I entered the search term "find" and got the following results:
(itīs a German setup but you certainly get what Iīm referring to)



As you can see thereīs an entry "find starten", i.e. "start find". Itīs the fifth entry from the top.
Itīs attached to a gears icon which certainly means itīs not a dedicated programme, rather some sort of setting or service.
At least thatīs my guess...  :003:

Hmm, I was wondering what the effect of clicking on it might be. So I clicked on it but nothing seems to have happened.
I looked in lnav for potential log entries but found nothing. :023:

Does anyone know what my clicking on it might have done?

Thanks a lot for your help in advance.

Many greetings from Rosika  :wave

Hi stevef,  :)

thanks for the link.
In fact I stumbled over the same article yesterday but didnīt bother referring to it as it doesnīt seem to apply with my case.

To answer your question:

No, the files system for my LL installation is ext3 for root as well as for home.
So I think changing the respective line to
Code: [Select]
PRUNE_BIND_MOUNTS = "no"wouldnīt be of help here.  :023:

Curious though: the locate command does find files elsewhere. So generally it works alright. Itīs just the home partition which seems to be excluded.

Thanks anyway for your time and help.

Many greetings
Rosika  :wave

Rosika,

I'm not helping much.  On the systems I have, mlocate (LL5) and plocate (LL6) both find files in the home directory (and any sub-directories) - subject to them being cached in the database.  Is your disk btrfs ?

I found this which suggest some issues with mlocate and btrfs related to home directory

thanks for your help.

You may have plocate in LL6

Yes, indeed LL 6.2 came with both installed:

Code: [Select]
dglob plocate; and dglob mlocate
plocate:amd64
mlocate:all

The output of the command you provided is:

Code: [Select]
ls -al /var/lib/plocate/
total 7000
drwxr-xr-x  2 root root       4096 Jan 25 16:20 .
drwxr-xr-x 80 root root       4096 Jan 19 17:41 ..
-rw-r--r--  1 root root        183 Feb 17  2022 CACHEDIR.TAG
-rw-r-----  1 root plocate 7142630 Jan 25 16:20 plocate.db

So date and time of plocate.db is:

You could try opening a terminal (press ctrl, alt, t together). Then at the prompt type

Code: [Select]
lite-tweaks
followed by return.  This should open the Lite Tweaks utility.  Scroll down and select 'Taskbar Restore'

Click begin.

Installing Linux Lite / [ SOLVED ] Newly Installed- desktop blank-no panel
« Last post by ieyecaptin on Today at 05:59:51 AM »
Hi,
I installed LL from a disk a few days ago. Yesterday, all of a sudden, the panel, which is normally at the bottom of the screen disappeared. Since then my desktop is blank with nothing but a cursor. I can still right click and access applications, but I have no panel and no ability to shut down etc. For any help I would be very grateful.
