I usually look in /usr/bin if I don't know.

Also, how does finding out the command relate to getting a GUI for the software? I'd assume running "freearc" would give the output shown in the first post.

Usually, the command starts the GUI program. Try typing "firefox", "konsole", "gedit", etc. in a terminal and you'll see.

That's actually how the GUI program is started behind the scenes from a GUI menu.
