Where is my installed program?

Mon Aug 13, 2012 12:41 pm

I am using the Wheezy Debian from the downloads page.

I used "sudo apt-get install libreoffice" to attempt an install. Everything seemed to go fine. Where do I go to launch the program?

Is anyone using a different office package that works better?

Assuming it consists of a single program called libreoffice then try typing that at the command line

If you type $PATH at the command line you should get a list of directories in your path. The software should have been installed in one of these.

I have not tested any of that as I am not using that version but it should give you a clue.

You can also use the Linux command FIND to locate the file. At the command prompt type:

sudo find / -name aFilename
.

It depends on Java, but no armhf java. You can use abiword though, I believe.
