I wish to have the command locate in ubuntu 12.04 (which is used for finding files. I believe there is such a command but I cannot see it in ubuntu 12.04 Is it part of any package?
sudo apt-get install locate
sudo apt-get install apt-file
apt-file search /usr/bin/locate
sudo apt-get install mlocate should install the 'locate' command. But you'll have to sudo updatedb every so often.
sudo apt-get install mlocate
