Default Onother Way 2 do thinks

you can also try the command
as root

locate -u -v
-u - Create slocate database starting at path /.

-v - Verbose mode. Display files when creating database.


this will create the filesystem database
then you can use the same command with no parameters
ex. locate nano

/usr/bin/nano
/usr/share/doc/libxml2-devel-2.4.23/html/libxml-nanoftp.html
/usr/share/doc/libxml2-devel-2.4.23/html/libxml-nanohttp.html
.............
look inside the directories sbin(for root progrmas) and bin for normal executable files

inside kde press alt+f2 and type the name of the program to run it

mxd
