In Konqueror, go to Settings -> Configure Konqueror -> Web Shortcuts. Choose 
the Default search engine at the bottom. The original is locate. search for 
it in the drop down list.

Also you can even use Google or Altavista if you want...

As for a simple desktop search engine... slocate would do. Although it's not 
as "dynamic" as the more popular ones (don't know how often it automatically 
updates its index).
