If i use find-dired in a remote directory (from Tramp) then I get a wrong type argument: processp, nil error.

It works on a local dir.

All I pass to find is '-iname "blah"'.


find . \( -name "*blah*" \) -exec ls -ld \{\} \;

sftp is implemented in Tramp by GVFS, so it doesn't support remote processes. You must use a Tramp method like ssh or scp.
