Description Janet 2010-12-03 15:45:08 UTC
Version:           unspecified (using KDE 4.5.4) 
OS:                Linux

Dolphin's Nepomuk search box only understands trailing wildcards, not leading ones. When I search for "foo*" it finds "foobar". When I search for "*bar" it doesn't find "foobar".

Reproducible: Always
Comment 1 Hans-Rudi Denzler 2010-12-04 18:51:44 UTC
Seems to be fixed in KDE: 4.5.80 (4.6 Beta1)
Search for '*ast' finds:
Hoher Kasten.jpg

'ast' finds the same files.
'ast*png' finds:
yast Monitor.png
Comment 2 Sebastian Trueg 2011-01-05 15:22:49 UTC
SVN commit 1212019 by trueg:

Use a regex filter instead of bif:contains if wildcards are used without the necessary leading chars.
