Downloaded now where did it go.
 
Ok I am new to Linux so please be gentle. I have downloaded a couple programs( Example limewire, google crome) and have no idea where to find them to run them. I also do not know which version of Linux I have. I have a Eeepc

Which Linux distro? Launch the programs from a terminal.

Usually it is located in user home directory or Desktop folder. Try to find it. The simplest command to find them, open up a terminal (DOS prompt or shell as you knew it), enter this command:

dinodidit@host-$ find /home -iname '*xxxxx*' <Press Enter>
(Replace xxxxx with the name of that file you have downloaded.)

{Wait until terminal lists whatever nearest files of name *xxxxx* it found.} The listing will include the directories of location.

Hope this helps.
