    Text-Searching Thru Multiple OpenOffice Writer Docs in Linux


    I'm asking here because OpenOffice forums and groups are totally clueless! I'm using Linux Mint 13 with OOo 3.5 and I've been seeking high and low for an app that will text search thru OOo docs as I can on Macs via plug-ins. Linux User recommended "apps" as and Docco don't function.

    Any help would be appreciated!

    I think OO files are compressed XML files, aren't they? So you could try something like this:

    for file in *.odt; do
      unzip -ca "$file"|grep -q "search_string" && echo $file
