Traditional File Managers--Good, Not-So-Good, and Best-of-Breed
Today, standard hard disk sizes offered in shops are typically 160 GB and cost €100 [US$129] . Next year, it will be 400 GB for the same price. Where do all those data and files come from that fill them up? I don't know really, but what I do know is that on all my computers the complete available disk space tends to be eaten up within a year. If I put in a new, additional disk with double the volume, it is full after 12 months. If I replace the original disk with one that is five times the size, it doesn't last longer than 52 weeks.
Despite Konqueror's position as the best-of-breed file manager, it is painful for me to handle all this data. And it doesn't look like it will become a more pleasant experience as the numbers keep growing. Plus, I am not the person that easily deletes digital stuff. (I also do not throw away old hardware, or books, or paraphernalia that quickly, either.)
Now, I know about and love
locate, and I run
updatedb regularly. And it is extremely cool to type
"locate:sylvi jpg" directly into the Konqueror location bar or even the File Open dialog; it finds that image which shows Sylvi's excellent handling of her "aircraft" when she starts up for a long paragliding flight. The KDE KIO slave for "locate" saves me the effort to first type into a Konsole window
locate sylvi|grep jpg and then puts the result into the file manager. But even this is not enough.
