How to add Thunar context menu entry for recursive search file pattern

I would like to have a Thunar context menu entry for recursive searching files and folders with certain filters.

So when I right click on a certain folder in Thunar a dialog should appear which allows me to specify the

- file pattern (e.g. "*2012*.log")
- file size (e.g. minimum 20000 Bytes)
- last modified date (e.g. last mdoified after/before 23.11.2012)

How can I achieve this?

Re: How to add Thunar context menu entry for recursive search file pattern

Here and here are links to pages that show how to integrate catfish with Thunar to give you search capability.

Catfish allows you to specify file patters to search, allows you to pick date frames, and gives you the capability to open the resulting files from its interface. As for size, you can click on the size header to sort by size.
