  • Look for pattern in the database. Note: the database is recomputed periodically (usually weekly or daily):
     
    locate {{pattern}}
     
  • Look for a file by its exact filename (a pattern containing no globbing characters is interpreted as *pattern*):
     
    locate */{{filename}}
     
  • Recompute the database. You need to do it if you want to find recently added files:
     
    sudo updatedb
