    i have noticed that the command locate doesn't work properly at fedora.
    and this is happening not only to my box.
    every time that i have to find a file the first is to locate then because i get a blank output i try apropos and the same.
    but when i search it by my own i locate the file.
    this is not happening all the time but it happens.

    You need to update the slocate database first:
