    Default V12.2 64: How to use search

    I want to search the entire file system for a file.

    Using gnome, I click on the filing-cabinet icon on the desktop and a file-manager program opens.

    By "checking" go/search_for_files, a search toolbar opens, and I type the name of the file, then press enter.

    As a test case, I search for a known file, but the file manager doesn't find it.

    A search results toolbar appears with location and File_system drop down windows, additional search criteria can be added using the + (plus) sign.

    Pretty simple, but I can't find an option to search the entire partion for a file.

    What am I missing?
    Regards,

    Hi Nautilus search is unfortunately broken in 3.4. It does works in 3.6 though. You need to wait for 12.3 for that.
    Install package gnome-search-tool and it works well
    Code:
    su -
    zypper in gnome-search-tool
    GNOME Version 3.20.2
    openSUSE Leap 42.3 64-bit
