    Where is the file?


    I installed Debian 6. When I download a packet I can't figure out where it is downloaded. I search for it and look in /home/download but my packet isn't there. Where is it and what do I do to find it?

    Sorry, I've never used Epiphany so can't really say where it drops downloaded files by default, but you can check this customization howto to make sure you have it configured to download them to the folder where you want them:

    Customizing Epiphany

    Maybe some Epiphany users will chime in with more info for you.

    To use Firefox, install it, then go to:

    Edit / Preferences / General

    ...then select "Save files to" and choose the folder where you want downloaded files saved to, or create that folder if needed.

    Debian uses IceWeasel, which is FireFox minus the Mozilla branding.
    You should have that installed by default.
    If not, just enter this in a terminal window:
    Code:
    aptitude install iceweasel
