    Normally they go to /bin or /usr/bin or /sbin or anywhere defined in $PATH

    echo $PATH
    further reading


    go into a console and type

    timidity &


    see if anything comes up

    Apps install into /usr/bin, /usr/local/bin, or /opt by default (/bin is only for binaries needed for startup, and any sbin directory is for root-only applications).

    To see where your particular one is installed, run:
    Code:
    which <command>
    which will return the directory where the binary is located.

    i found my file timidity which is in /usr/local/bin. But all I get is kind of like a read me. I think I got it to run but the readme just comes up in the command line. It has info about the program and redistribution. I don't know how to get the program to run. Do you want me to put everything it says on here? Thanks again.

    Are you sure you entered
    Code:
    timidity &
    in the command line? If the window doesnt open up use the
    Code:
    jobs
    command to see if it is running in the background. If you see timidity there then use
    Code:
    fg jobnumber
    to bring it to the foreground.

    [root@localhost bin]#
    It seems like the text that comes up is the application. Thanks again.
