Thanks, but I looked for the locate command several years ago. It seems that locate is not installed in any of the suse distros that I have used, currently 8.2. I tried it again just now, to be sure and got a command not found, including under user root.


You have to install the findutils-locate package.

And run updatedb (as root) before running it. Good idea to put updatedb in cron to run in off hours.
