How to search entire hard drive for a file?

A simple find / -type f -name "" would do the trick if you know exact filename.
find / -type f -iname "filename*" if you want to match more files.
Avoid -type option if you want to search for directories etc. See manual of find for more information. To see the manual, issue the command:
man find

How to add and modify applications in the slingshot launcher of elementaryOS

Open up a terminal and type:


sudo apt-get install --no-install-recommends alacarte

Now, we're going to make alacarte work with slingshot. Type this in a terminal:


sudo scratch-text-editor /usr/share/alacarte/Alacarte/MenuEditor.py

This will open up a text file. Hit ctrl+F to search for 'applications.menu' and replace all with 'pantheon-applications.menu' (you have to replace applications.menu twice in the file). When done, close the file.

Now start the menu editor by typing 'alacarte' in slingshot or in a terminal

sendemail: invalid SSL_version specified at /usr/share/perl5/IO/Socket/SSL.pm line 332


sudo aptitude install sendemail

sudo aptitude install libio-socket-ssl-perl

sendEmail -f xxx@gmail.com -t xxx@gmail.com -u Teste_Assunto -m Teste_Corpo -s smtp.gmail.com:587 -xu xxx_conta -xp xxx_senha -o tls=yes

if you have this error:
invalid SSL_version specified at /usr/share/perl5/IO/Socket/SSL.pm

The SSL_version is being coded as "SSLv3 TLSv1" and the regular expression is failing. I hacked it as a workaround as follows... change:
m{^(!?)(?:(SSL(?:v2|v3|v23|v2/3))|(TLSv1[12]?))$}i 
 to:
m{^(!?)(?:(SSL(?:v2|v3|v23|v2/3))|(TLSv1[12]?))}i

That did the trick for me.
