When I am installing plugins for Mozilla and Netscape I have the same problem. Doing a simple

find / -name plugins

has always worked for me although it is admittedly not as elegant as the others have suggested.

This is where I would like to see some more standardization...

The configuration in SuSE 9.0 is done from
Code:
/etc/sysconfig/locate


This is for GNU updatedb ver 4.1.7
