+  <p>Type the command or program name in the Terminal and press the Enter key. You can locate if the program 
is installed by executing the command 'which' followed by program name. If the program has been installed on 
your computer, you will be shown the full path of the installed program. </p>
+  <note>Often programs cannot be seen by terminal because they do not lie in its path. To add locations 
where programs are installed to the path of the Terminal, add the location to the PATH variable in your 
shell's configuration file. </note>
