I need a searching software for Ubuntu 10.04. I need it to index my files on idle times, categorize the results in a simple layout and have a good compatibility with nautilus is appreciated. anything available at all?

The 'locate' command already does this. For a GUI, install catfish (apt:catfish)

Catfish takes a long time to search. I suppose it doesn't do the indexing part. Also I didn't find any integration in nautilus. Please correct me if I'm wrong, I'm an absolute newbie.

I think its quicker if you change the search method from find to locate.
