Catfish – file search

For some reason, XFCE doesn't come with a pre-installed file search facility and thunar lacks this feature.

However you can use the command line to search for files

find -name “file.png” for example

However this isn't really an option for a lot of users. The solution is a program called catfish, ( i guess you fish for files).

apt install catfish as root of course

Enter the file you are looking for in to the search box and press enter -

search

Hopefully this is helpful. I have asked about this on #debian and it seems to be something that needs to be addressed.

DEBIAN CONSOLE FONTS

I have found another way to change the Default Linux console font to something that is more readable, from the default which is really small text. The instructions are at [1]. This works on my current Debian [2] 11.0 set up, but as usual Your mileage may vary. If you ask on a forum, social media or IRC about this, please quote the website below [1] and not this blog post.

The contents of my /etc/default/console-setup are now as follows:-

 1 # CONFIGURATION FILE FOR SETUPCON
  2 
  3 # Consult the console-setup(5) manual page.
  4 
  5 ACTIVE_CONSOLES="/dev/tty[1-6]"
  6 CHARMAP="UTF-8"
  7 CODESET="guess"
  8 FONTFACE="TerminusBold"
  9 FONTSIZE="16x32"
 10 SCREEN_WIDTH="80"
 11 
 12 VIDEOMODE=
 13 
 14 # The following is an example how to use a braille font
 15 # FONT='lat9w-08.psf.gz brl-8x8.psf'
 16 

Hopefully this is useful.

For the record my settings are:-

ACTIVE_CONSOLES="/dev/tty[1-6]"

CHARMAP="UTF-8"

CODESET="guess"
FONTFACE="TerminusBold"
FONTSIZE="16x32"
SCREEN_WIDTH="80"

VIDEOMODE=
