I’m always managing a lot of files on my computer and especially I always download a lot of new scientific papers.
I use referencer to manage my collections and i save the paper using the first name of the author and the year.

However I never remember the name of the author, but I only remember when I hit that paper and saved. So here where Nemo comes handy.

Nemo “is a cross between a calendar and a file browser with labels.” The index of your file is done using tracker as back end so you don’t need to install anything else on your linux box.

Here the screenshot to give you a better understanding

So I just have to select PDF and look what I have saved yesterday and “et voilà” I found the stuff I was looking for.

If I select all the files of course it will find all the files.

Nemo All the files

Note the first screenshot that I made few minutes ago it’s already indexed by tracker and displayed by nemo.

Of course this will not replace the Nautilus o tracker GUI search, but it has its own ecological niche of use.
