    Question Finding installed software...

    Hi,

    On Ubuntu 13.4, I just installed 2 software packages. They don't show up on my docker column on the left and I don't know how to get them through "Files." One of them was a directory tree. I can't get at it with any of the icons. Is there a terminal command that would allow me to get at them, or any other way?

    Help...

    What are the packages and how did you install them?

    If the program you installed was called "tree" then open a terminal (Ctrl+Alt+T) and type "tree".
    Many of the programs in the Software Centre are for the command line in a terminal, you can tell by the box icon.
    For graphical programmes open the dash by pressing Super+A (Super is what the WinKey is called in Linux) then start typing the program name.
    Or click on Dash Home at the top of the docker column.
    So for example you could open the terminal by opening the dash and typing t e r m and then click on the icon.
    For a list of keyboard shortcuts hold down the Super key for a couple of seconds.
