So I want something pretty simple 🙂 App where I put a dir to search, and a string/regexp to search in the file contents recursively in that dir, and it gives a list of results.
I don't want something like 'tracker' that runs in the background and indexes things, I want something that just searches on demand like grep, given a path.
In windows I used grepWin which was pretty perfect for the purpose.
I tried KFileReplace, seems a bit awkward. Also tried the built-in Nautilus search but it seems to only look at file names?
Edit: gnome-search-tool seems more like what I'm looking for but it doesn't support regex (or it does, but just for file names).
