its unlikely farr will ever be ported to linux, but these launch tools are starting to get popular so i expect linux will have some more good alternatives for linux in the coming year or so (written by others!).

Linux actually already has quite a bunch of them. most run in some kind of panel or task bar though. (or on the desktop). I yet have to see one that launches at a keypress.

2.0.45 is up with an attempt to fix the two bugs found in 2.0.44 (note there is now an option to keep farr windows ontop, which was default in the past but is now not the default).  Let me know any more bugs.

Click on the mail (envelope) button underneath mouser's avatar and send him a private message to get a link for the alpha version. Nothing wrong with posting here, just that you'll likely get a quicker response and the thread won't get gummed up with requests...

Thanks for implementing this option. I am not sure how it works. I went to options>heuristic scoring and gave "recency date bonus" the highest score. However when I type ".txt" the most recent text file is not on top of search results.

Well let me quote myself now. If I set the value to 9999.00 instead of 500.00, I get the result I want: most recent files come first. I thought that a value of 500 will suffice as it was the higher value in Heuristic scoring, but now everything works as wished.

i may just add a column sorting feature which would do what you really want in a cleaner fashion.  the problem you encountered is because it's also scoring files based on their filename length which is also effecting the score.

mouser: the clipboard functions are cool and extremely useful!  :-* As discussed in another thread, it would be neat if you could backup the previous clipboard content and replace it after launch?

i have a problem in the latest alpha (2.00.46) where if i launch Farr, a Ctrl+C keystroke is sent. i realize this when Farr is launched with with Salamander in the foreground because in Salamander, Ctrl+C changes to C drive.. so i find myself having revert to the original drive after that.. :(

and this is only happens when i launch Farr for the 1st time and after some time of inaction but once Farr is active, successive launches does not display this behaviour.. any ideas, mouser?

go to general options and uncheck "Auto copy selected text to clipboard" option..
perhaps i need to disable that by default..

"Auto copy selected text to clipboard" is quite an useful option.. perhaps Farr could make a little check if any text is selected before auto-copying?

I will try to do some investigation into better ways to do this..
Also another option is to have a way to specify windows/programs to exclude or include.

Something which bugged me even in the original version was the option to enter certain strings that I could enter into the run menu and execute, don't work.

For eg, "startup.cpl" to run the corresponding control panel applet.

This is especially a big thing for me since I tend to use some alternate shell (blackbox is the current favourite) where the default run dialog is simply not available.

by the way, you've been doing a great job with this :)
