On Windows I enjoy the super fast search tool called "Everything" from voidtools. Is there such an application for Ubuntu? I look up in alternative.net but none of them are as good as Everything. On Wine, unfortunately, Everything does not work. It runs but does not show any result.

In terminal find is one of the most powerful searchtools out there but not very user friendly like most powertools.

As an alternative Fsearch could be interesting for you. To install it:

first add the ppa in terminal

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:christian-boxdoerfer/fsearch-daily

then update your repositorys

sudo apt-get update

and install Fsearch

sudo apt-get install fsearch-trunk

to remove Fsearch you can type in a terminal

sudo apt-get remove fsearch-trunk

sudo add-apt-repository --remove ppa:christian-boxdoerfer/fsearch-daily

sudo apt-get update

hope that helps.
