Exclamation Linuxconf Dissapears?

I have used linuxconf several times- Both from command line and the GUI (Gnome).
However i recently logged in as super user only to find that linuxconf has gone???

In SU mode i typed

linuxconf at the command line

with no results

And in the GUI i clicked on Linuxconf. When i went in behinfd the GUI the command was not found?

I guess i am doing something very stupid any ideas

I'm not sure if I'm saying something stupid but...
try to make a
slocate linuxconf
if it still exists, then try to see the permissions on it. If you have runned a malicious program/script as root it's possible that it has changed some file permissions. Not sure tough.
