Graphical desktop search without indexing (based grep, find etc.)?
10th point of this interesting list mentions desktop search not dependent on indexing. Beagle and stuff like that need to update their database and so does the command line locate tool. I *hate* updatedb to be honest so I am actually interested in killing the need for it.
So, there are tools like grep and find which search the files directly. However using them might sometimes be tedious for certain searches. I'm wondering if there is a graphical tool which uses these kinds of tools (basically being their frontend) to do complete desktop search.
Searchmonkey seems close, but I'm wondering if there is something similar that actually has a simple beagle like (or google-like if you will) one-line-for-search interface.
