GNOME Utilities

GNOME comes with many utilities that make your work on the desktop easier and more productive. This section covers several of the tools that are integral to the use of GNOME.

Search Tool

Display the GNOME Search tool (gnome-search-tool) by selecting GNOME menu: Search for Files (Figure 7-13). This tool is a front end for the find, grep, and locate utilities. The Simple tab is generally associated with locate; the Advanced tab with find. You can display the command either query generates by selecting from the menu bar Search: Show Command after you have filled out the text boxes.
