    [SOLVED] What happened to the GNOME Search Tool?

    Hi,

    I used to use the GNOME Search Tool to look for files. I now wanted to use it for the first time since upgrading to Hardy and it's not found. It's not in the repositories either. How do I get the gnome-search-tool back?

    EDIT: The same for gnome-screenshot.

    They are both under the gnome-utils package, install that, see if they come back. The upgrade to hardy might have uninstalled it and not reinstaleld the new form for some reason.

    Thanks. Although I didn't install the package. I downloaded it and extracted Screenshot and Search Tool from it. I just hope they don't get updated too often.

    I wouldn't worry about it too much, you should probably check at least once a month just to be sure.
