knowing where the software is won't help you uninstall it in the first place. packages are only "installed" from the point of a package database, the files themselves are just put on a disk like any other.

if you installed from an rpm try "rpm -e ultraedit", from deb use "dpkg -r ultraedit" or whatever the package name actually is.

So for running it... you really don't need to know. Just run the program from a command line, there's no "Program files" directory to go hunting for, the binary should be on your path.

Yes but you need to know as the program is called. Because ultraedit should be called uex
Even if the original post is not very clear

Ultraedit was my favorite during my M$Windows matrix days. Today there is an Ultraedit for Linux. The binary is "uex" with few options. But it is nothing compared to Gnu editors. Nevertheless for the sake of helping--

locate the uex binary in many ways, as stated above:

Code:
which uex
if not returned, try find it--

Code:
find {/bin,/sbin,/usr/sbin,/usr/bin,/usr/local/bin,/opt} -type f -iname '*uex*'
That should return the binary's location.

The other shorter way is to verify the install record:

Code:
cat /var/log/packages/*ultraedit* | grep uex
Goodluck.

I took a quick swing by their website,... Try /opt/local/uex for the directory...

The rpm name is likely ultraedit (eg see google)
Code:
rpm -qa |grep -i ultraedit

you can try
Code:
yum remove ultraedit
but check the list of dependencies it may want to remove.
Sometimes it gets a bit out of hand.
If so, you could just try
Code:
rpm -e --nodeps ultraedit
