How to find xpti.dat file?


I need to delete xpti.dat file. Where the heck is it?
Ubuntu search is horrible as it does not search recursively in folders. How lame is that?

My history problem:
1) Installed flashplayer from flash.com. No problems.
2) got no sound on youtube.com. Video worked fine
3) Googled up problem, some idiot said to do sudo apt-get install libflash-mozplugin
4) Flash is now broken
5) Tried doing sudo apt-get remove libflash-mozplugin. No good
6) tried to reinstall flash
7) FLash installer tells me to contact administrator and delete xpti.dat file. Where is it?

Excellent! I knew the 'find' command could do this.

It turns out that youtube.com had a glitch for Linux users for the past week. Now they fixed it so the problem was actually on their end! My Flash 7 is working fine again
