    Where are applications stored

    Where are the ubunutu software center applications physically stored? I can't find them physically anywhere in my /home drive or by using the search tool.

    The main file goes in /usr/bin, all the rest are in other folders in / (root). If you want to find a specific program, open a terminal and enter
    whereis nameOfFile
    Changing nameOfFile to the name of your file.

    I don't know about Software Center, but in Synaptic Package Manager you can see where each file in a package is installed by right-clicking on one, Properties, Installed Files.
