aptitude install findutils

Now you should have the fixed version of the xargs command, which can be used in one-liners like:
find ~/Desktop | xargs grep -H -I -i -n "Name\[ru\]"
which showed me the following information:
So I have searched for the string "Name[ru]" in my Desktop directory and got the corresponding file name with the line number containing this string. ...also a really nice example for the expressiveness of the cmd line UI.
