But now the files I am actually looking for are called (test)a ,b ,c etc
this is what find returns.

|[[email protected] play]$ find .  \(test\)a
|find: invalid predicate `(test)a'
|[[email protected] play]$ find . '(test)a'
|find: invalid predicate `(test)a'

Can someone direct me to the light please.
