    Gnome Search Tool

    I noticed that the gnome-search-tool is no longer in the universe repository. Any thoughts?

    That's a shame Its the only full text tool that does not create an index. In my case, I use it quite a bit since my file system is dynamic.

    You can give Catfish, an Xfce tool, a try: https://bluesabre.org/projects/catfish/ It should be available in the Ubuntu repositories.

    Can gnome-search-tool be brought back to Ubuntu 18.04? I used it to search text in c++ files. Catfish is not nearly as practical and functional as gnome-search-tool. Or is there some other alternative which is as good as gnome-search-tool?

    Thread moved, as Bionic has been released.

    You can also use an IDE / code editor to search for text in files. Try Sublime Text 3 or Atom.

    Re: Gnome Search Tool

    I used gnome-search-tool for searching all text files under a directory that contained a certain text. I'm not sure a code editor can have such a built-in utility.

    I tried searchmonkey, it's quite good, almost the same as gnome-search-tool.
