Recently I was using a program that allowed me to print to my printer or print to CUPS-PDF. I needed the PDF file to attach to an e-mail. Once I printed to CUPS-PDF, I could not find the PDF file. I have had several other occassions where I needed to search for "wildcard.pdf" over a given date range, etc. I find use of the terminal highly objectionable as I need to teach my secretary how to search for files, etc. I need something easy to use.
Is there truly no way to do this in Ubuntu 12.04 w/o resorting to the terminal?
