Search for files does not work on Dolphin

Leap 15.4

I had this issue on 15.3 hoping to be fixed on 15.4. When I go to dolphin into any folder with files, if I press Ctrl+F and type anything to search for a file it says it can’t find anything. This is quite annoying specially when some folders have hundreds of files.
Any Idea how to fix it?


With Leap everything previous and Leap 15.4, I’ve never experienced the issue you’re reporting.

Operating System: openSUSE Leap 15.4
KDE Plasma Version: 5.24.4
KDE Frameworks Version: 5.90.0
Qt Version: 5.15.2
Kernel Version: 5.14.21-150400.22-default (64-bit)
Graphics Platform: Wayland

Which then begs the question – what’s different on your machine?

  • The KDE System Settings –
    → Section “Workspace” –
    *=2]→ “Search” –

Have enabled “File Search”?

  • You should reduce the searching to be done – as much as possible …
    Index file content only if, you really have to …
    Index hidden files and folder only if, you really have to …
    Index only your home directory …
    *=2]Index other directories only if, you really have to …

Try to reinstall Dolphin. You have a bug.
