When I use helm-locate directly, it shows a list full path of candidate files. However, only basenames are shown in helm-source-locate section, when I use helm-mini. How can we make helm-source-locate to show full path in helm-mini as well? Because sometimes there are files with the same basename.

I tried to use and modify some codes in helm-locate.el, but didn't succeed.

I found the following solution after reading the source code in details:

(setq helm-ff-transformer-show-only-basename nil)
