    Question Where is the Gnome search tool in Unity?

    Hello,


    I've been using Unity for about a week now and I'm slowly getting used to it. I now just wanted to search for a file in which I used the word "Pannekoeken". With the old Gnomje search tool I could search for documents which contained a specified word within the document (and not just in the title).

    How can I access the old gnome search tool in Unity? Or how can I search within documents with Unity?

    [EDIT] On this page somebody said that I needed to look into /usr/share/applications, but in there I can't find any search tool. Am I overlooking it or is it simply not there?

    It may not be included by default anymore, run this to see & install if need be
    Code:
    sudo apt-get install gnome-search-tool
    If desired you can go to /usr/share/applications & drag on to the unity launcher, drag onto desktop, otherwise search in the apps dash or add to an existing quicklist - screen
