View Full Version : [ubuntu] New to this and a few questions i have

June 27th, 2008, 07:39 PM
Hi all firstly i am a total convert after only one night of playing on the live CD and now have it dual booted.
I have found it supprisingly easy to use and am beginning to worry that it is all going to go wrong.
I am now using beryl if that is the right way of saying it.
My question

I have tried to upload a few applications and as far as i am aware it all went through fine but i cannot find them.
Any ideas where these will be stored.
Also when i used add/remove a ton of applications came up however i have seen no sign of them.

Your help will be greatly appreciated.

They should go in menus - but some applications might not have a menu entry - you can start things from the terminal usually if there is no menu - that of course relies on you knowing what to type to start it.

How about an example of something you can't find.

And a welcome to the forums as well

What specifically did you install? If you press the Alt + F2 keys together a dialog box will open and you can type the app name in there (there is autocompletion of commands there as well as the terminal)
Many executables are installed in /usr/sbin.
