Unhappy Linux Mint installed Clonezilla - but where is it?

This PC has Linux Mint 17.3 installed (as only OS). I went to the repository and installed Clonezilla. It shows it as being installed. Okay, so where is it? I went to the Menu it doesn't show up under All Applications, and searching for it results in nothing found. Anyone know how to get it active?

1st open a terminal and copy paste my commands into it and supply info to members in your post using the code tags in the advanced reply menu toolbar. It is the "#" symbol in the toolbar of the reply box.

which clonezilla

apt search clonezilla

sudo updatedb
wait for it to finish updating the data base. Takes a few seconds to finish.


locate clonezilla
You do not mention which Mint and What desktop environment you are using. No body is looking over your shoulder. So do not assume we know what you are running.

To save time I guess

which clonezilla
will return /usr/sbin/clonezilla
But you don't need that information.
Clonezilla runs in a terminal.
If you have clonezilla installed, open a terminal and enter
pkexec clonezilla
and it will start.

Velly interesting. Thanks!! I tried it and yup, all I need now is terminal and away it goes. This should speed up my version of a backup - clone it! I do that for software changes. Personal file changes get copied to a Passport external HDD.
