HOW TO SEARCH FOR APPLICATIONS IN UBUNTU

Method 1:--
There is a great application that can search all of your installed applications. It's called Xfce 4 Appfinder - and don't be scared by the name, it works in Ubuntu, Kubuntu, and Xubuntu. Now to install the program, open a terminal (Applications > Accessories > Terminal) and paste:

sudo apt-get update&&sudo apt-get install xfce4-appfinder 

It'll be in Applications > Accessories in GNOME, Kmenu > Utilities in KDE, and Xfce Menu > Utilities in XFCE.



Method 2:--
To search for anything with a GUI search tool, you can either go to Places > Search for Files, or you can right-click on any panel, select add to panel, and select the Deskbar search tool, and search from there.

Method 3:--
You can also install Beagle, a powerful search tool. To install it, just paste into a terminal:

sudo apt-get update&&sudo apt-get install beagle

It will replace the Places > Search for Files tool, and now it is just Places > Search.

Method 4:--
To search for anything with the terminal, you can either use the commands locate or which.
Locate is used more like a keyword-based search function. For example, if you type in a terminal:  locate java

then all files with the name java would appear, and there are a lot more than one if you have java installed. The which command will find the most important file associated with the keyword, i.e. which java
will reveal the location of the java executable, in /usr/bin/java, and that's it.
