Can't find Disk Usage Analyzer


I'm running Xubuntu 15.04. I installed Disk Usage Analyzer from the Ubuntu Software Center. It installed normally but I couldn't find it anywhere. Not in the Accessories menu. In the application finder. In the terminal. And usually there's something in the Ubuntu Software Center that shows the location but there's nothing there. I re-started the computer. Nothing. Then I uninstalled the Disk Usage Analyzer and re-installed it. Nothing. Any ideas what might be going on? Thanks.

Hi...

I'm not sure what's going on there but if you uninstall it from the Software Center and then try installing it from the terminal using...

Code:
sudo apt-get install baobab
Does this help resolve the issue? You can also install this package using Synaptic.

Regards...

My disk usage analyser goes like so

Code:
$ df -h --total
Filesystem      Size  Used Avail Use Mounted on
/dev/sda1       8.6G  5.0G  3.2G  62% /
none            4.0K     0  4.0K   0% /sys/fs/cgroup
udev            974M  4.0K  974M   1% /dev
tmpfs           198M  1.3M  196M   1% /run
none            5.0M     0  5.0M   0% /run/lock
none            986M  440K  986M   1% /run/shm
none            100M   24K  100M   1% /run/user
/dev/sda2       103G   69G   29G  71% /home
total           114G   74G   34G  69% -
which even works when I use a usb drive or sd drive of any sort plugged in and mounted also.

I tried it. Pretty cool (and quick). Thanks. The Analyzer I got from Synaptic does give you a lot more details on what's in your Home folder, though. I think both are good. Thanks for sharing.
