Ubuntu: How do I find the full path to a file?


I'm running into a little bit of bother with finding the path of a file called oragi I tried the find command but it didn't help.

I'm following the instructions on this page if it is of any help. :) https://github.com/neurobin/oraji


Ubuntu comes with a very handy indexation of its contents. Simply type:

locate oragi  

Do note this indexation is based on a database that is automatically updated, this means that very recent files won't be found by the locate command. Normally this is not a big issue, but if you need the database to be immediately updated you can type:

sudo updatedb  

Cheers! :)


Well if you have installed it correctly , then follow the command

whereis oraji  

This will display where it is installed.

Additional info:
if you have used the following commands as given in your link to install oraji :

sudo add-apt-repository -y ppa:neurobin/ppa  sudo apt-get update  sudo apt-get install oraji  

The above commands add the ppa to your system and on issuing cmd sudo apt-get install oraji it will install it like a software. But this doesn't seems to be a software more like a script packaged to install oracle. So probably it will be installing the java in your system. So after installing oraji , in the terminal type command as follows :

java --version  

If everything went fine , you will see java version installed.
