comment How do I get mlocate to only index certain directories?
good answer! I didn't realise you could search in two databases in parallel, thanks for the clarification. I am going to mark this accepted unless a better answer arrives!

Upvoting, as this is a partial answer. However, it only allows for whitelisting one path. My question was specifically about how to whitelist more than one path.

comment Are there any ways to access iCloud-based files with Ubuntu?
@Tom maybe, although it'd be sufficiently hacky (two processes watching the same directory) that I'd be nervous about unforeseen data loss bugs. Also, it doesn't appear currently possible to have Dropbox sync data outside its own directory: dropbox.com/help/12/en. Thanks for the idea though.

1. Has not been true for quite a while, as of iOS 5. iOS devices can be updated over-the-air.
