it doesn't matter where it was installed to really... it'll be on your executable search path, so just run it. "abiword". you could use "which abiword" to find where it actaully is, but you don't need to know.

sounds like it's not installed then. oh.. actually it *might* be called "abiword-2.0" or something. type in "abi" and hit tab to see what could compelte it... if there's still nothing, then i'd guess it's not installed.
