Thanks both, that's allowed me to tag and rate and search on tags. But.. I'm reading that strigi is supposed to index file contents - like ID3 tags from MP3s and EXIF data from JPEGs etc. But I can't find a way to search this data, as the Search toolbar in Dolphin only allows searching on tags, size, comment, or rating. I'd like to search for, for example, all MP3s with 'Bayou' in the title. Is there another application that I'm missing?

Thanks again,
