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

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

pay when you gain
