    List of "linked programs"

    Hi,
    is it possible to get a list of programs that are installed and startable through the Terminal? For example:

    I can open a Terminal and type, kate or mcedit or vim or etc.pp. . So is there a list of all those "Terminal links" ?

    Sorry that i have to post it here, but i dont really know what words to search for!

    Are you talking about just starting the application, or command line applications (ones thst don't use a GUI)?

    No, im talking about this:

    A list of all Terminal commands that can start an application (GUI or non GUI, doesn't matter), but not things like ls, sudo, chown etc.(which are system commands).

    you could use
    Code:
    ls /bin/ /usr/bin/ /usr/sbin/
    but that would call ls/chown since they too are executable binaries (you could try try removing /bin from the above and it'll remove the basic stuff)

    A link is something specific on Linux: http://www.thelinuxlink.net/lvlinux/...mmands/ln.html

    Type the first two or three letters of the app you want to run, then press Tab and the shell will show you what's available.
