Determining where applications are loaded


I am running FC7. I am in the middle of installing Java where I have to create a link. The instructions say to go to the directory where Mozilla is loaded. How do I determine where a application is loaded so that I can go there? Thanks in advance!

Have you tried slocate?

man slocate


To see where the rpm stores data:

rpm -ql name-of-package

man rpm
