This question already has an answer here:
How can I search files on Ubuntu?
The usual search tool does not find anything. I have installed tracker search tool, and it too does not find anything. I tried to follow the instructions found to enable this tool by going to System -> Preferences -> Searching and Indexing, but where on earth is System -> Preferences -> Searching and Indexing? I found a program called searching and indexing, but it does not contain anything that is described in the instructions.
