Beep Media Player Location

I've been searching wiith Locate and Whereis, but I can't seem to find the installation of the software (probably because of the BMP image format). Google hasn't turned up anything, either. Where is the executable installed?

It is probably in /usr/bin or /usr/X11R6/bin

if locate doesn't give you anything, it means that your database is not up to date.
updatedb && locate beep-media-player;

It's not in either of those locations.

I used "locate -u" to update the database after installation.

Nevermind; I looked for the wrong thing.

it's probably : /usr/local/bin/beep-media-player
...but you can always use ark or tar to see what's in a package
and where the files go.

if it's a package, you can also look in /var/log/packages

locate or whereis beep-media-player should do the trick. The executable is beep-media-player and not bmp.
