Ok, most likely, you need to install mlocate in order to have locate and updatedb on your system. That *should* do the trick, unless I am wrong.

What do you mean open apt-get? I'm pretty sure you are talking about your graphical front end for apt-get; You can do either or. I didn't mention how to before because in ALL honesty, I never even heard of your distro until now

And btw, on the command line, it would be the following:
Code:
sudo apt-get install mlocate

Well, in THAT case, you could "up" your failure by using proper grammar and capitalizing your words and using proper punctuation

Yup, you are correct

And you're half way there with those capital letters

Speaking of rep... Not sure if you know this or not, because most people don't know - The rep icon under the username in the left pane gives actual reputation, and the higher the post count and rep, the more points awarded. Finding posts helpful, regardless of the post and rep counts, will only give one rep. And no problem by the way... Anytime!

Cheers,

Josh

To add - I didn't say that just to get more rep either, since Eric had to call me out.......
