Linux and finding a directory name

I can find a name as follows:

[root@mmclnt13 home]# cd util
[root@mmclnt13 util]# ls
net
[root@mmclnt13 util]# find . -type f -name "net"
./net
[root@mmclnt13 util]#

Open in new window


However I have difficulty finding directory names

[root@mmclnt13 util]# cd ..
[root@mmclnt13 home]# ls
download  hosts  util
[root@mmclnt13 home]# find . -type f -name "util"
[root@mmclnt13 home]#

Open in new window


Is there a command to find both names and directory names when searching ?

Thanks

Your using type -f which means it is looking for "files".

find . -type d -name "util"

Will look for directories.

If you want to fine both files and directories name "util" just remove the "type"

find . -name "util"
