I’m a Fedora kinda guy, but recently i’ve been forced into the world of Suse. There are a few essential tools that i’d be lost on linux without. “Locate” is such a tool. Here is quick tutorial on how to get locate on in suse.
zypper install findutils-locate

Thats it! I told you it was a quick tip. zypper is to suse what yum is to fedora. Try zypper search for other handy packages.

What Linux tool can you not live without?

***Update***

Here’s how to install ‘locate’ on CentOS
sudo yum install mlocate
