    /etc/X11/xorg.conf is the full path.

    Locate works most of the time unless the database is missing or out of date. You can always use the find command:

    Code:
    find / -name xorg.conf

    For binaries you can use the which command:

    Code:
    steves-mac-mini:~ steve$ which java
    /usr/bin/java
    Steve

    just update the locate database with

    sudo updatedb


    locate works great.

    Or run it as a cron job then you won't have to worry about it.

    It depends how often you're going to use the tracker, or "locate" really

    I hardly ever use it, I have some strange file organization, but it works I usually remember where stuff is

    Your subject title nearly had it right, type "whereis xorg.conf" in a terminal.

    That will not return the location of xorg.conf, rather just xorg. the locate on the other hand will return the full path of xorg.conf.

    aktiwers@HAL:~$ whereis xorg.conf
    xorg: /usr/lib/xorg
    aktiwers@HAL:~$ locate xorg.conf
    /etc/X11/xorg.conf
    /etc/X11/xorg.conf.backup
    /etc/X11/xorg.conf~
    /usr/share/displayconfig-gtk/xorg.conf.fallback
    /usr/share/man/man5/xorg.conf.5.gz
    /var/lib/x11/xorg.conf.md5sum
    /var/lib/x11/xorg.conf.roster
    aktiwers@HAL:~$
