    Default How to use Nepomuk and Strigi ?

    Hello.

    I have Strigi and Nepomuk indexing files (OpenSuse 11.3), but I do not know
    how to use the results of these tasks.

    Regards.

    You can utilize it in Dolphin file manager.
    Linux[openSUSE, KDE], PHP, MySQL, Wordpress, Tech News, etc :

    on my system (openSUSE 11.3, KDE 4.5.1), the search toolbar in dolphin sometimes appears as a separate window, and then sometimes _behind_ dolphin's main window. that's a temporary glitch i'm sure and will soon be straightened out. still, if that happens one can have a hard time finding the search bar...

    another way to use nepomuk search is via konqueror: type "nepomuksearch:/<your search term(s)>" into the address bar, and you'll see results just as in dolphin. (personally i prefer konqueror over dolphin; probably just habit.) you could type more complicated search queries, but only if you knew sparkle syntax (if i'm not mistaken), which is quite complicated.

    you can even use nepomuk search via krunner (alt-F2), if you enable that option in krunner's settings. (just type a name or whatever into krunner, and if it finds anything via nepomuksearch, it'll show the nepo. search icon with a link to the document, contact, etc.)

    in "system settings -> workspace appearance and behavior -> desktop search" you can customize where in your system strigi (nepomuk's indexer) does it's job. if you add ~/.kde4/share/apps/kmail per example, it indexes all mail dir.s you have in there. those are returned as search results with funny file names, but have an '@' in the icon, marking them as email messages.

    i find this already quite useful, but of course, nepomuk development for the end user is in it's beginning stages. there'll be more convenient & versatile ways to search your system's content--eventually.

    apart from end user searches, akonadi/nepomuk is meant for all types of applications to share information without the overhead of having to set up a separate database for each of them. far as i know, at present kaddressbook (part of kontact) uses akonadi/nepomuk to keep track of your contacts and enabling you to synchronize gmail contacts & calendars, per ex.. kmail will follow soon, together with all the other kontact app.s.

    and many other wiki-, forum-, and blog sites that i can't recall now. it's an interesting subject.

    Thanks.
    it seems to work, but the result is not convincing.
    KFind takes longer, but answers are OK.

    Thanks to you all.

    Now it works well as a search tool in Dolphin, it probably needs some time
    before the database is built up.
    I will try later the other ways to use it.
