If you want to find files quickly in linux, simply go to your console and type in this command, you probably need to be logged in as root to do this:

:: Code ::
updatedb  //hit enter
locate php.ini // this is just an example

And that's it, your db of all file data is updated. If you've never run this, it will take a while to run, but after that your files are easily found.
