Default Last 100 changed files?

I dont know a GUI with that purpose but both Dolphin and Krusader has
a advanced search function where you can specify a last modified date
and you can save the result to a file.
Using the CLI you can use find with the -mtime option to search for
changed file.

I'm having the same spelling problem with FireFox with a fresh F10 (it's =
not "Fedora Core" any more, right? ) install. If you right click in a t=
ext box, at the bottom of the menu is a Languages sub-menu. I think that'=
s where you change dictionaries. Mine was set to en_NZ by default!

Default Last 100 changed files?

Yes.

In standard KDE3 one can find the kfind application in the menu.

I forgot why kubuntu packages KDE3 without kfind in the menu, but the
application is there (alt+F2, run "kfind").

Best regards )

Dotan,
while I kind of understand why you ask,
frankly, I do not understand why you would need to find out what the
last 100 changed files are?

Please briefly explain.

Kind regards

For that, I'd just sort on modification date - I can't really imagine caring
about _exactly_ 100 changed files. If you want to search on an entire
filesystem there's kfind as Jonas and Johnny suggest (though it isn't on _my_
KDE 4.1 menu, Johnny)

In KDE3 kfind can also search whatever folder one specify, as well as
exclude or include sub folders beneath said folde, whatever the user
likes.

I don't know about KDE4. That's why I specifically wrote KDE3 in my
previous answer.

Best regards )

Sure - it just doesn't seem that important to use it if all you want is to
look at the contents of your home directory.

Ah... I mistook your comment as applying to specific versions, rather than
Kubuntu vs "standard" KDE (is there really such a thing?)

While it may not be important to me or you, it may be important to the
OP.
I just answer the OP's question as best I can. )

I would say that the KDE source package that is released from the KDE
project, is considered "the standard KDE package", i.e. "vanilla
KDE".
I'm sure you know that different distributions then make more or less
changes to KDE when they integrate KDE into their particular flavour
of a distribution.
I simply recall a message on a list like this, helping a new user
finding "the search application" in the menu of "vanilla KDE3", in
the process telling that it was called kfind.

It was in the earlier KDE3 days, so I actually don't know if vanilla
KDE 3.5.x still has kfind in the menu.

What KDE4 is like I have no idea, since I haven't used it yet.
(Plan to, though, when kubuntu 9.4 comes out ))

Best regards

Johnny )

It would not be that difficult to write a program to do this. That is
what someone did for windows. But I don't know what the market for
such a program would be, or how slow it would run.

All the program would have to do is run the appropriate CLI command and
splat the results into a window. Something similar to: "find ~ -ctime 1
-printf "%CY-%Cm-%Cd %CH:%CM:%CS %p
" | sort -r | head -100". All the
hard work is done by the CLI tools, the program would just have to throw
it into a window. It could probably be done with something like TCL/Tk
that can produce a simple GUI. Some filtering might need to happen,
though, because you get a lot of thumbnails and miscellaneous files
updated by the system. Excluding any directory or filename that starts
with a "." might be enough, however.

How so? We' re still discussing exactly what was asked in the original
post.

As did I - he said he wanted to search his home directory, so kfind is
overkill for that.

Well, afaik they _all_ make changes, so I'm not sure anybody really runs a
vanilla KDE.

Well, it's definitely worthwhile to mention that - I've been using KDE for
over 10 years, and until 4.1, and no embedded kfind in konqueror, I had never
actually known that kfind was a separate application. The embedded kfind may
well be the thing I miss most.

And if you have managed not to switch yet, there's no good reason to until
9.04! I like what's there in 4.1, but it's just a crying shame that there
isn't _enough_ in 4.1!
