    Default I can't find installed application

    Hi. I can't find and run the apps that I nstall. I mean compressed apps that we should run their configure in the Terminal.
    Where do they go after install and how can i run them?

    That is up to the app's installation process, there is no general
    answer. Sometimes I've had to search the entire disk for the filename to
    find them. /usr/bin/ is one common destination, but home/[username]/bin
    is another.

    If you tell us what the app. is, it might help us.

    Often it's a simple as type it in a terminal

    eg: open a terminal and type: dolphin (this assume you are using kde4)
    you could type: firefox

    ---------------

    You can add the app. to the menu too. Just find the executable, then edit the menu
