    Location of gedit?

    Where can I find the location of gedit? I'm asking because I'm trying to open a text file on Firefox, and it asks me to find the program to open it with.

    You can use whereis in a terminal to find any installed program afaik

    Application > Accessories > Text Editor.
    Be Safe. Use Linux.
    Double your drive space. Delete Windows.

    The /usr/bin/gedit is just a link to the real program.
    Windows XP - Excellent computer virus detector.
    Windows Vista - Most bloat for the money.

    ive always used "which gedit" but I agree whereis is very nice. I think I will start using it as well.
