Searching is a very important part of our everyday usage of computers. Whenever you’re in a hurry, you may need to locate a certain file or folder instantly, directly from your desktop. For that high speed access, there are various apps to help you out.
Are you on Linux? Then there are several powerful tools for performing that “fast search” action. We already discussed and showcased the well-known Fsearch tool. Check out the usage of Fsearch.
Today, we’ll be having a look at the ANGRYsearch – another powerful tool with similar feats of performing faster searchers for you without any additional clutters and other issues!
ANGRYsearch is extensively configurable and is regarded as the best alternative to Fsearch. Let’s enjoy ANGRYsearch right away!
Run the following commands according to your Linux distro.
We have to get ANGRYsearch from the AUR repository and build it from source.
sudo pacman -S git base-devel git clone https://aur.archlinux.org/angrysearch.git cd angrysearch makepkg -sri
Not interested in the lengthy process? Consider using any AUR helper like Yaourt, Pacaur or Trizen!
sudo yaourt -S angrysearch pacaur -S angrysearch trizen -S angrysearch
For installing on Fedora, there’re official RPM packages. Get the RPM package that matches your platform –
# Fedora 29 wget http://download.opensuse.org/repositories/home:/KAMiKAZOW:/Fedora/Fedora_29/noarch/angrysearch-1.0.1-2.30.noarch.rpm -P ~/Downloads # Fedora 28 wget http://download.opensuse.org/repositories/home:/KAMiKAZOW:/Fedora/Fedora_28/noarch/angrysearch-1.0.1-2.68.noarch.rpm -P ~/Downloads
Then, install the RPM package –
cd ~/Downloads/ sudo dnf install angrysearch-1.0.1-2.68.noarch.rpm
The method is the same as Fedora – grabbing the RPM package first and then, installing it directly.
# Leap 15.0 wget http://download.opensuse.org/repositories/home:/woelfel/openSUSE_Leap_15.0/noarch/angrysearch-0.9.5-lp150.30.1.noarch.rpm -P ~/Downloads # Leap 42.3 wget http://download.opensuse.org/repositories/home:/woelfel/openSUSE_Leap_42.3/noarch/angrysearch-0.9.5-30.1.noarch.rpm -P ~/Downloads # Tumbleweed wget http://download.opensuse.org/repositories/home:/alanbortu:/angrysearch/openSUSE_Tumbleweed/noarch/angrysearch-0.9.5-29.14.noarch.rpm -P ~/Downloads
Then, perform the installation –
cd ~/Downloads/ sudo zypper install angrysearch-0.9.5-30.1.noarch.rpm
If your Linux distro wasn’t included in the aforementioned list, then we have to follow the classical process of grabbing the source code, compile and install the program.
At first, make sure that your system contains all the necessary dependencies –
Then, run the following commands –
git clone https://github.com/DoTheEvo/ANGRYsearch.git cd ANGRYsearch
Run the installation script with “sudo”
Start up ANGRYsearch –
At first, hit the “update” button –
Wait for the updating process to complete.
ANGRYsearch is ready!
