Mozilla install using Slack Package

Downloaded Mozilla1.0 package for Slackware and installed without a hitch, but call me stupid, I can't for the life of me figure out where it installed. I'm relatively new to Linux, but I have installed packages before and had no problem running the app. is no help, so i turn to the experts here.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

xgtr, out...

As a general rule, you can find executible files with the which command, and find other files with the locate command. If you've just installed a new package, it won't be in the locate database, so you'll have to run updatedb to update the database first. In my case, which mozilla gives:


and locate mozilla gives an extremely long list of files, all of which are in either ./opt/gnome, /usr/local/mozilla, or /usr/local/include/mozilla.
