Finding files through Thunar

I have xfce installed with thunar as the file manager. It would be very productive to have a tool that allows the user to find files, similar to catfish (which seems to have been developed by the Ubuntu team). Does such a utility exist for non-Ubuntu OS's?

backup-manager(8)					      System Manager's Manual						 backup-manager(8)

backup-manager - An easy to use backup tool for your Linux box. SYNOPSIS
backup-manager [options] DESCRIPTION
Backup Manager is an easy-to-use tool for generating archives. It is designed with simplicity in mind for those who don't want an obfuscated tool for making tarballs. There are different methods for building archives: tarballs, incremental tarballs, mysql dumps, svn dump. You can also write your own method with a generic method that will execute a command and will archive its output. Every times you run Backup Manager, you can upload archives thanks to a couple of upload methods: through FTP, SSH or even with RSYNC. It's also possible to export your archives to removable media like CDR or DVD. CONFIGURATION FILES
Backup Manager's behavior is defined in configuration files. You can use different configuration files at the same time. The default con- figuration file is `/etc/backup-manager.conf'. An example should have been provided with the program, most of the time it's installed in `/usr/share/backup-manager/backup-man- ager.conf.tpl'. If you want exhaustive details about how to write your own configuration files, please refer to the Backup Manager User Guide: OPTIONS
--version Show the version number. --verbose|-v Print what happens to STDOUT. --no-warnings Disable warnings. --help|-h Print a short help message. --upload|-u Just upload the files. --purge|-p Just purge old archives. --burn|-b Just burn the archives. --md5check|-m Just perform the MD5 checkup on the CDR/CDRW. --conffile|-c file Use an alternate config file. --force|-f Force overwrite of existing archives. --no-upload Disable the uploading process. --no-burn Disable the burning process. --no-purge Disable the purging process.
