Searching for files in Nautilus
I'm a long time Mandrake junkie and have recently installed fedora core. While Fedora is fast and stable, it doesn't seem to want to do anything - anything at all.
For example - try to locate a file - in windows you open the search window, enter a search pattern eg *.doc and maybe some filters and click the start button. In Windows 95 or Me you're presented quickly with a list of files that match. (In more modern windows and Mandrake - it still works but slowly or VERY slowly)
In fedora core, the Nautilus help file says Fedora should work the same but, no matter what search variables you input the answer is always blank. It doesn't matter if you input the name of a file you know is there or whether its on a VFAT or native partition.
Its very fast, so I suspect its not actually searching.
How do you get fedora to locate a file (from the GUI) I must admit I haven't tried find or whereis in a terminal window yet.
