The command 'which' followed by a script or programname will often give the results you need. In this case it would be 'which kde'. On my system this gives: /usr/X11R6/bin/kde.

Another option is 'locate', but on some distributions this must be installed.

Yet another option is find, i.e. 'find / -name *kde*'.

Good luck,
