App install location

Would anyone be able to tell me the location of where an App is installed when installed through the software menu?
I installed JTDX and I need to find the location of the file

in terminal run

which JTDX


whereis JTDX

Every program may install certain files at different locations, but rarely just one file. If you could be a bit more specific about what you are trying to do we may be able to give help out better.

As pointed out by @14nd above, the which command followed by the name of the program will return the location of the executable file. But if you are looking for configuration files you'll have to look somewhere else.


I've been using which for years. I tested whereis <appname> just now and that returns multiple directories, thats awesome. Thank you!
