Hi all

I am using mdfind command to search the items in my system, but it fails when i login as a root in SnowLeopard and Leopard.If I login as a user then it works fine.

For eg. If my application is on the desktop and i type command in terminal

mdfind -onlyin ~/desktop applicationname

it wont display any result.

It is working only if my application is in the "Applications" on my mac.

QUOTE Thanks
