Locate duplicate files under Ubuntu (And some ranting)

Edit: Post updated due to obvious user error 🙂

Looking for a program to find dublicate files? Then fdupe saves the day!

root@bais:/home/samba/raid0# apt-cache search fdupe
fdupes – identifies duplicate files within given directories

By the way, how come the apt search gives to random results?

torhenning@bais:~$ sudo apt-cache search duplicate
mirror – keeps FTP archives up-to-date
vlc – multimedia player and streamer
(and a lot of other irrelevant crap)

Can`t exactly say that having to grep in a search results is a good “feature”..
