could maybe start with 'echo $PATH' to at least see what directories your
current shell will be looking in for executable files. No guarantee your
she'll environment is set up right though.
Also, wasn't Fedora going to do away with user bin? Or is that the one
they are keeping? Maybe I dreamed that!
A better approach might be to use your package manager. I have dpkg
installed for that purpose on my systems. To check/search for if say
xterm is installed I could do the following;
>>dpkg --get-selections | grep xtermlxterminal
This should find the program in question and any other executable file with
the string xterm in it. The path in my shell shouldn't matter.
