Did you customize the install packages? locate runs the first time you log into KDE.

If you're root, try

source /etc/profile

Hi

Check to see if you have this file installed:

findutils-locate-4.1.7-748.i586.rpm

( rpm -q findutils-locate )

If not you can download it from ftp://ftp.suse.com/pub/suse/i386/9.0/suse/i586/

Just an info for RedHat / Fedora users:

These RPM-based linuxes use mlocate for locate/updatedb

cd into your DVD Packages folder and issue:

rpm -ivh mlocate*

Welcome to LinuxHelp.

Just a FYI while you did provide some good information responding to a 4 year old thread will not help the OP.
