Thread: How to find the location of a downloaded library

  1. #1

    Question How to find the location of a downloaded library

    A programme that I am interested in, requires the metis library, I downloaded it using the one-click install button, and I got the message Installation was successful.
    Now I want to know its exact location.
    I use the command rpm -qa metis*
    and the answer was
    metis-4.0-9.1
    What I need to know is where exactly it has been installed, when using the utility find, the answer is permission denied.
    What command should I use?
    Thanks for reading my post

    Hi
    Normally they are in /usr/lib (or /usr/lib64 on a 64bit OS, if you also
    use YaST software management and click on the files tab or from the CLI;
    Code:
    rpm -ql metis

    Code:
    rpm -ql metis
    shows you the files installed by the package.

    Thumbs up Re: How to find the location of a downloaded library

    Appreciate very much your informative reply. (by the way it has been installed in /usr/bin and /usr/share/metis)
    May the Allmighty bless you both
