"Recoll is based on Xapian, a mature open source search engine library that supports advanced features such as phrase and proximity search, relevance feedback, document categorization, boolean queries, and wildcard search.

"Since Recoll’s Web site provides binary packages for most major Linux distributions – such as Fedora, SUSE, Ubuntu, and Debian – you can install it easily using your distro’s package manager. If you want to enable support for document types that require external helpers, you have to install them separately using your distro’s package manager (a list of the required external helpers is available at Recoll's Web site). You can then launch Recoll by choosing Recoll from the Applications → Accessories menu (in Ubuntu) or running the recoll command in a terminal window."
