Hi, I am looking for a way to open a directory that is listed in the search results. If I click it it says: This tyoe of file cannot be opened. Is there a way to link the directory result to an application to open it? Or should this be a feature request to you. I have the file browser i.stalled from the jolla store, but that does not open. Thanks!

Hi, as far as I know, it is not possible to use File Browser with parameter (e.g. if you run "harbour-file-browser /usr/" it will always open /home/nemo directory). It is possible to use build-in file manager from Settings/Storage, but I have to learn how to use it. At present, SearchNemo never tries to open a directory with xdg-mime, it is valid for files only. In any case, SearchNemo has to be modified for opening directories. I will try to make some experiments soon.

I made a complete Russian translation but cannot upload it to transifex because it requires some permission to enter the team and edit the hosted translations.

Great! I have accepted your access request to both languages: "Russian" and "Russian (Russia)".
You can choose whichever you like and upload your translation.

Excellent! Wishlist: include text/plain files without an explicit .txt extension.

Done. New version (0.5.0) is available for download. It contains new option in settings: automatic filetype recognition. Test it and enjoy :)

I've been thinking about this option for a long time, but i didn't have enough motivation to make it. If there are at least two persons who want it, I will certainly try to deal with this topic in the near future.

That would be a nice feature.

To identify text files, you could use the "file" command. Examples:

[nemo@jolla ~]$ file tst
tst: C source, UTF-8 Unicode text
[nemo@jolla ~]$ file testfile
testfile: ASCII text

This is so good, useful and poignant that it deserves to be offered alongside the basic must-have apps maintained by Jolla in the Harbour store!

Thank you. I have nothing against it :)
