is there a better file finder than cat fish? SOLVED
« on: August 12, 2014, 11:32:38 am »
I was trying to transfer files from one external drive to another and i was using cat fish to find some files
from my one drive and drag to the other but it seems i can't just drag the full folder i have to grab the
separate files. is there another kind of finger program i can install  or is there a way to set up this one
to work more like the mac finder???

Try gnome-search-tool
Code: [Select]
sudo apt install gnome-search-tool
You'll then find it at
menu > Accessories > Search for Files...

You can drag and drop out of that.
