What "application" are you talking about? Are you trying to locate where a program is installed on your hard drive? You need to be more specific please. Also, what distribution are you using?

I don't understand what you are trying to say....

Say, in linux, you are trying to see where the ssh command is installed. I would use the "which" command like so:
Code:
[root@ltp01 ~]# which ssh
/usr/bin/ssh
If it is within your path, it will output where it is located.

You could also use the locate command, and the find command, if you wish.
