Where has gnome-search-tool gone in F38

It was my go to tool for searching inside text files. Quick, easy to use with lots of options. I can’t find it or install it in F38. Is it possible to install in F38? Is there an alternative?


Does the built-in search (search bar) not do the job for you? the software behind it (tracker) indexes everything and you can search for files and file content.

I’ve tried using the in built search bar but it doesn’t give any results for php scripts

After much messing around trying to get the inbuilt search bar to work, and from the other threads here I’m not the only one, I download the gnome-search-tools F37 package and installed it manually. It works fine on F38
