View Full Version : [ubuntu] lucid: catfish --path removing last folder

May 25th, 2010, 03:22 PM
Dear All,

After installing catfish in ubuntu lucid to find file/folder, I used the command

catfish --path=$HOME/folder1/folder2 &
where $HOME/folder1/folder2 is the path where I want to find the file.
However, catfish simply omits the folder2 from its path, i.e it tries the file in $HOME/folder1. This would work, but it would take a longer time to find the file.

Catfish of Hardy works well. However, catfish of lucid has this problem.
Any suggestions or workarounds?

I know this thread is almost a year old, but this is the top search result on the problem and it is still not resolved in the Natty Alpha 2 (Ubuntu 11.04).

Since Catfish is effectively becoming abandonware, we may need to take up future updates ourselves.

A fix for this bug is provided here:


I tested the fix in both Gnome and Xfce with success.

If someone knows where I can report this bug so that a fix can be committed for a future version of Xubuntu, please point me in the right direction.
