"Recoll consists mainly of program/client 'recoll' and the program/daemon recollindex. The latter is responsible for indexing files and can be run as a daemon for indexing files in real time. Depending on the distribution you may also find 'recollq', which is the client command line. Once launched, the client Recoll warns you to proceed with its configuration before starting the indexing. Click on 'cancel' otherwise it will indexes all your personal folder. In the window that appears enter the folders and subfolders that you want to index by selecting the button '+' (remember to remove '~'with the '-'). Click 'OK' and Recoll will start with the indexing of files in these folders. At the end try to find one or more files that contain a particular word or phrase and instantly you'll get the search result. For future indexing by hand simply select 'Update Index' from the 'File' menu."
