Normal Program Installation Path? O_o


What path would one normally install just a random program into in Linux (equivalent of C:\Program Files)

....... and if you want the program to run, make sure its in your PATH

echo $PATH

for either an ordinary user or Root user will show you their PATH directories (they're separated by colons)
