Desktop Search In Ubuntu Intrepid (And Debian) In KDE 4.2
Ubuntu Intrepid 8.10 features an inbuilt desktop search. Unfortunately I never managed to get it to work right and I tried a lot of things.

I think this is related to Redland instead of Soprano. Unfortunately, as Phreedom told me, the Ubuntu and Debian maintainers don't supply Soprano with the current builds. Also his recommendation is to use KDE 4.2 (Kubuntu 8.10 comes with KDE 4.1).
