Re: Detecting how Apps are called.



Hi Jim,

I hope I do understand your question. The SD card usually loads
(mounts) in the "/media" folder. The actualy device file is in "/dev"
somewhere.

As for the execution of files. I'm not familiar with any switches to
show where it's running from. For the most part the file you're
looking for is in "/usr/bin", "/usr/sbin", typically any "bin"
directory. Not all packages are equal though. You might have some that
will run directly out of their directory (ex:
/usr/opt/songbirf/songbird).

One way you can narrow it down is to run the "locate" command.

$ locate -i songbird

It will display all the possible instances of the word "songbird".
