A new tool of this kind is "strigi", you can find it in the repos. It's the 
new project of the former developer of kat.
It's way faster than beagle/kerry (it's written in c instead of mono), but 
it's in very early stage of development.
Also, version 0.3.8 (in repos) seems to have a bug that causes massive cpu 

Another interesting project is "tracker", but it seems Gnome-oriented: I can't 
find a gui for kde...
