Desktop integration

Being independent of the desktop type has its drawbacks: Recoll desktop integration is minimal. However there are a few tools available:

  • Users of recent Ubuntu-derived distributions, or any other Gnome desktop systems (e.g. Fedora) can install the Recoll GSSP (Gnome Shell Search Provider).

  • The KDE KIO Slave was described in a previous section. It can provide search results inside Dolphin.

  • If you use an oldish version of Ubuntu Linux, you may find the Ubuntu Unity Lens module useful.

  • There is also an independently developed Krunner plugin.

Here follow a few other things that may help.
