If upgrading to EL7 is an option it has GNOME Tracker builtin. You get
desktop search right after installation. It has a bug that files can be
missing from search results sometimes (and can appear again in next
search), but in general works well enough for me. Hope the upcoming
EL7.3 can have fixes for that bug.
