    How do i get QS to search my files? Search as in the same way that spotlight would search.

    As in, if i want to see all files associated with "lupe fiasco" i type in lupe fiasco and search?

    Why not use Spotlight to search for files?

    the bigger your index of files, the slower it will run because it has to search through more stuff.


    as the post above me says, use apple's default search to find specific files.
    command + space

    why does the spotlight work so fast then? does quicksilver just suck at indexing?

    yeah this is the best bet. i was trying to use QS to replace spotlight since it seemed to do much of the same thing in a different way. But whatever, I will use QS as a application launcher and a application controller for now only.
