[Solved] pfilesearch error

Post#1 by Ed_P » 03 Feb 2015, 03:59

Code: Select all

guest@porteus:~$ pfilesearch
/usr/local/pfilesearch/pfilesearch: line 18: type: gtkdialog4: not found

But USM can't find a gtkdialog4 module.

I get the same error in XFCe Porteus 3.1 x86-64, but pfilesearch works fine even with that error.

I looked into the code. In my book, that is a scripting error of the original script creator.

Just change line 18 from this

Code: Select all

if type gtkdialog4 > /dev/null; then export GTKDIALOG="gtkdialog4"; else export GTKDIALOG="gtkdialog"; fi #puppy specific
into this

Code: Select all

if type gtkdialog4 > /dev/null 2>&1; then export GTKDIALOG="gtkdialog4"; else export GTKDIALOG="gtkdialog"; fi #puppy specific
and the questionable output will vanish.
Cheers!
Yours Rava

Thank you Image Rava.

pfilesearch works even in RazorQt Porteus 3.0.1 x86-64 but I wasn't sure the impact the error was having.

Wishing to continue the discussion from the last post, but the posts having gone off topic, have split the thread, moving all relevant posts to Programming in Topic: Shell Redirect. Anyway don't think would have been right to let an interesting contribution of Rava's languish in a Newbies topic.

Dum dum me, being an moderator myself, I should have been the first to be aware that it's getting off topic. And that is was a moderator's post that made it go off topic to boot. Sorry for that. :oops: . Must remember that I can delve into scripting details, and I am always happy to enlighten people anyway. Thanks for reminding me, I try to check my own answers from now on, and when I delve into a more general helping / explaining posts, it would either be best in HOWTO or Programming. :)


BTW, just looked up "languish" in dict.cc. Quite the tricky word, seems as when translated into my native tongue it's revealed (at least to me, being no native tongue I am not that good with rare uses words) it has quite contradictory meanings. From more nice and positive to quite the opposite...
Sneaky litle word, that. *starts with a brand new personal dictionary of sneaky English words.* The first new handwritten dict even, after quite some years already excelling in the TOEIC test with 99% score. </own trumpet and blowing and such> </dodges rotten tomatoes as thrown at him from Porteus forum users>

... SCNR, that's just my black and dry kind of humor. :D
Cheers!
Yours Rava
