How to know the path of a particular software?

Context: I'm trying to make an application automatically start when I login. For this I need to select the path for the application.

enter image description here

Here are the paths I already looked into:

  • /sbin
  • /usr/sbin
  • /usr/local/bin
  • /usr/share/

If this may help, the application I'm trying to find is called "ScreenCloud" and I downloaded it from the Ubuntu Software library.

But I cannot find it, is there any way I can know where is installed a particular software? Because even if I found for this one, I would like to avoid having the same issue in the future.

You can check where a package is installed with whereis package_name.

In your case, whereis screencloud. It returns /snap/bin/screencloud.
