Well, by exception rules I meant user configurable ones naturally.For example the .emergency files that Lyx saves are not a standard so it would be nice to configure my own exception rule for that. Run Nepotomuk and look at their advanced configuration to see what I mean. I might (for the time being) try to implement this by going through the source. You said there are already exception rules implemented, where in the source code roughly (what file name) is that happening? would it be easy to add more? - May 15 2009

I'm not sure what you mean on the web page regarding the action system or whatever it is. I haven't had any problems. One thing that I thought was nice though: after I installed this, my friend told me that nepotomuk was supposed to do something similar. I intensely dislike that software and I think what you wrote is much better. However one thing that they had that was excellent (which might not be that hard to implement) is exclusion rules. I don't know if they would be global, or an a directory by directory basis, but in any form they would help. E.g. you could have an exclusion rule for .* because those are hidden files that you generally don't want to search. A personal example: I wanted a file called Biophysics.lyx. So I type in bio*lyx. I get the hit I want, but I also got Biophysics.lyx.emergency. This (and file names ending with tildes) are software saving backup copies of what you are working with, and again generally you don't want to search these. Just a suggestion I think is useful and relevant. Cheers! - May 14 2009

This is amazing and needs to become part of KDE. Back in KDE 3 they had a pathetic version of this, it only indexed ~/. I remember thinking how obvious it was to add other directories and how useful it would be then. You have one-upped me, by adding this and regular expressions as well. Top notch job, this will really enhance my computer use day-to-day. If its cool with you, I want to email the KDE people (or perhaps post somewhere) and suggest this be part of KDE 4.3. - May 14 2009
