There's only a few places where executables normally go with Fedora's
packaging.  The vast bulk of them go in /usr/bin

# for i in /bin /sbin /usr/bin/ /usr/sbin ; do echo $i ; ls $i | wc -w ;
done
/bin
105
/sbin
260
/usr/bin/
2826
/usr/sbin
441

Some go off in funny places down /usr/lib but that's very unusual.
Point being you can typically guess the path for the executable, and it
is typically /usr/bin.
