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!

Getting ANGRYsearch

Run the following commands according to your Linux distro.

  • Arch Linux

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
  • Fedora

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
  • OpenSUSE

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
  • Other distros

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 –

  • python3-pyqt5
  • xdg-utils
  • git

Then, run the following commands –

git clone https://github.com/DoTheEvo/ANGRYsearch.git

cd ANGRYsearch

Run the installation script with “sudo”

sudo ./install.sh

Using ANGRYsearch

Start up ANGRYsearch –

At first, hit the “update” button –

Wait for the updating process to complete.

ANGRYsearch is ready!
