K that's the last straw. The fucking thing is right there.

What search program do you use? I had a few problems with GDS not updating properly back in windows. Have they fixed that?

Likely no one has answered you as they have no clue what you are asking or trying to say.

GDS ???

Is it Sabayon related ? is it linux related ? is it just s general question about search engines online ? is it a search function in linux / SL ???

The pic is dead link or maybe it is supposed to show a dead link ??

Help us understand your question then we can try to help with a possible answer.
Max size for attachement in the forum is 250kb you can try and post the pic again as a .jpg and should be maybe smaller.

Shout if you need some more help.

I don't know why but the kde file search needs the file type wildcard.
Add ".*" (period asterisk - without quotes) to the end of the searched for item name.

Nothing new. I first noticed this when I started using the kde file finder in suse 10.0 and gotten used to it.

I liked Sabayon until it switched to Rigo and becoming the gentoo equivalent of Ubuntu. Extreme browsing? Extreme gaming? Extreme work? Extreme development? Like, totally gnarly, dude!

In the linked photo the file in question is visible and circled on the left side. It's mount.sh, not mount.desktop.

You're right. Thx.

It's not so critical now, but I wouldn't mind some suggestions if anyone has a favorite search.
