When looking for files on the Linux desktop; you may often rely on the search feature of your favourite file manager. The conventional searching approach is to apply an exact search; so that only files or directories that are a perfect match to the search string are displayed.
A fuzzy search, on the other hand, performs an approximate search; and instead of identifying exact matches, displays matching results with each keystroke. The fzf utility identifies itself as a general-purpose fuzzy finder. Released under the MIT License, the cross-platform tool can be used across all flavours of Linux.
Installing fzf in Linux
