DiskSearch is a tool for searching for files on all your removable media disks (e.g. CD's, ZIP disks or backup tapes). For instance you can search for songs on your MP3-CD's or for a document on your backup DVD's.
For advanced queries there is a regular expression search mode. The search is based on a simple database file which needs to be filled once by adding all your disks to it.
Since version 0.9.0 the projects has been renamed from 'CDSearch' to 'DiskSearch' because it's possible to archive many types of removable media now.
Starting with version 1.0.0 DiskSearch supports internationalization, currently the languages english (default) and german are included. Interested users could create and send us other translations too.
· Python >= 2.3
· GTK+ >= 2.4.0
· PyGTK >= 2.4.0
To install DiskSearch extract the archive to some temporary directory and run 'make install' as root. This will install DiskSearch to '/usr/local'. You can also simply uninstall DiskSearch by calling 'make uninstall'.
To start DiskSearch after installation just enter the 'disksearch' command.
The name of the Python interpreter executable can differ on some systems. If you have problems to start DiskSearch you probably need to edit the Python reference in the file 'disksearch'.
