Sorry I misread your post, somehow I read: "I want to perform some simple 
search LIKE in digikam 0.9.4"...

Right, in 0.9.x you have to save the search first, there is no other way. 
digiKam 0.10 however will perform simple searches that don't need to be saved 

One thing you can try: Create a search that delivers simply all your images 
and than use quickfilter on that search result, this should emulate a simple 
search like in 0.10.
