Have tried recoll and Recoll and clicking straight to the app itself.
Rebooting doesn't help.
Nothing works except for cat
recoll doesn't use the same parameters as catfish, so you need to remove the parameters. Looking at it, you need to set up a index first, and it will search the index rather than a given folder.
Sorry for digging out this old thread, but it is possible to search in the current folder with recoll. The custom actions must read:

recoll -q dir:%f

And the folder must be part of the index, of course.

Just in case someone is searching the forums to find out how to do it.
