Hi,

You can search for files in linux using the following methods-

1) Applications>>accessories>>search for files. This could be different for different Linux operating systems.

2) Using find command in the terminal. You can use it as following command-

find / -name 'filename'

/ is used to search for files from the root.

-name matches the pattern

Filename is the name of the file you want to search for.

You can use the following command, if you are unsure about the full file name.

find / -name 'filename*'
