Where I can find installed appz?


Hi. When I've installed FC3 on my laptop, I've choosen custom installation, 'cause I remember in old distributions that they install so many applications I don't use, ignoring some others I really need. The problem is: where are programs I've choosen? I can't find some of them in Gnome or KDE menu... I see / directory as so much subdirectories, for example /home is the home directory for users, /root for root... I think others had a meaning I don't know, and probably in some of them I can find what I search, and I can understand so many things...

Can you help me?

Thx

Some programs are not added to the menus, but you should be able to run them using console (or run program option) by just entering their names. The executables are probably in /usr/bin

or
/usr/bin
/usr/local/bin
...


I have written what specific directories are in this post. If you are searching for the place the individual apps are installed it would vary greatly from distro to distro.

The command which <command> shows the location of a binary (if it is installed in your PATH).

Also, the command rpm -ql <packagename> gives you a list of files in that package (and where they are copied to).

There is a small KDE application (I think the name is kappfinder), that searches the system for newly installed software and adds them to your menu.
