Depending on where you expect the file to be, start with ls(1). The
(1), by the way, means the use of the command is doented in section
one of the manual, so you can type `man 1 locate' to get an explanation
of all the options you can use -- if you don't give a number, man(1)
will guess. If ls(1) doesn't give the expected results, you could try
locate(1), or if that fails, find(1), which is a bit harder to use and
is slower, but it has more options and can be more accurate. This list
isn't exhaustive, but lists just the most general facilities.
Welcome to the world of unix[tm]. For an introduction, you could try this:
There do exist various file-browser things for the people that can't
handle the command line, like midnight commander. It might be installed on
your system. You could ask your system administrator about it.
