"locate" works based on a database updated using "updatedb" (daily on my
system).  It can be used like "locate libtinfo".

If the file is one that has been newly added to the filesystem, you can
use the "find" command, which starts at some directory and searches
through all subdirectories.  (Don't start at "/" because directories like
"/proc/" probably should not be searched.)  A sample find would be 
"find /usr/lib/ -name 'libtinfo*' -print".
