#793 case sensitive search not working properly

libfm (303)

Using Lubuntu 13.10

Case sensitive search for contents is not working properly. The Case Sensitive setting for Name search is on by default but will apply to Content search eventhough the Case Sensitive setting under Content is not selected. Doing a Content search even if the Content setting for case sensitive is not checked will still result in a Case Sensitive search because Case Sensitive is selected under Name/Location search. Selecting Case Sensitive under Content will double up the Case Sensitive setting and equal a NOT Case Sensitive search.

I filed a bug about this but it was mutually cancelled as I could not reproduce the problem.

    Sorry, my mistake again. You use Case INSENSITIVE options instead of the opposite. You should consider changing it though as it is confusing, options will usually be Case SENSITIVE option, not the opposite...

    If not, you should consider having the Content search Case Insensitive option also selected by default.

    This behavior is changed in current GIT to be as you suggested - both options are selected by default.
    Thank you very much.
