What exactly do you mean by "desktop search application"?

If you have Ubuntu Lucid installed you already have a search facility 
under Applications>Accessories>Search for Files.

Or if you have mc (Midnight Commander) installed you have a search 
facility there.

Or, if you are into command line usage then there are command line 
commands which will find you every thing you want (and about which I 
have almost no knowledge :-( ).

So, what exactly are you looking for :-) ?


If nothing happens, nothing can go wrong.
