Thread: Nepomuk for dummies

    Question Nepomuk for dummies

    Alright, can someone explain me how nepomuk is supposed to work on opensuse 11.4 KDE?

    My nepomuk is active but it always says in "systemsettings" that 0 files are indexed. When I do a search via Dolphin, it never finds a file. It doesn't matter if I select "from here" or "everywhere".

    I also tried to select the root dir '/' to look for files to index, but still nepomuk says 0 files are indexed and dolphin finds nothing.

    Can someone explain what I'm doing wrong?

    maybe it is the way you are searching....for example, lets say you
    want to find

    Code:
    something.txt
    you might think just typing

    Code:
    something
    and hitting enter and (like google) it would find: something.txt
    new.something, old.something, not.something, something.else and etc in
    the place you were looking..

    well, it will! but ONLY if you enter this

    Code:
    *something*
    its a feature, not a bug..

    I tried with the '*' but no success...

    And this also doesn't explain why nepomuk says 0 files are indexed...

    open up the "configure file indexing" dialog. Make sure that both "Enable nepomuk symantic desktop" and "Enable strigi desktop file indexer" are checked. Then go to the "Desktop Query" tab and click on the blue "Customize index folders" link. In that popup you need to check on the left all of the folders you want to be indexed.

    But I thought nepomuk could be used without strigi as strigi is used to index metadata inside for example a text file.

    What can nepomuk exactly do without strigi running? And how do you set it up and use it? Can't it just be used to search for a file "test.txt" in dolphin? The search bar in dolphin does has a button "filename" so I would think it can.

    strigi is what is used to actually search and find stuff. nepomuk is used to classify, organize, and present data.
