Kubuntu - Dolphin Search

If you want to get search feature in Dolphin working you need to have the desktop search enabled in Kubuntu. Dolphin is the file manager comes with Kubuntu. However, if you try the search without the desktop search feature enable, you will simply get an error message which doesn't give you any clue as to what went wrong. I have file a bug highlighting this.

Until the developers fix this, I thought of educating others as to how to get it working, hence the blog. Go to system settings, click the advanced tab and then you will find the desktop search feature there. Please see the below image.

Go in to desktop search and enable Nepomuk Semantic Desktop and Strigi Desktop File Indexer.
