Hey, the forum post here: http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=182201 ,
does a pretty good job of explaining this. Also, to run a command, you can hit alt-f2 and begin typing the name of an installed program in if you know it. It will autocomplete the box for you. Hope this helps!

You can use locate and which command to locate applications using the Terminal (Accessories->Terminal).

i.e:

with Which (we try to search for gedit):

which gedit

or Locate (we try to locate for the gedit application):

locate gedit

Or, if you want to know if a certain application is installed, you can use:

apt-cache policy application_name

HTH.

Can you help with this problem?
