Is it possible to run the desired program in the terminal with the command?

If possible, what command should be used to run the programs?

Asked By: Mehdi


For terminal programs the command to run the program is usually the same as the package name of the program. For example, the package name of Vim is vim (with a lowercase v), and the command to start Vim is also vim (also with a lowercase v).

For launching GUI applications you don’t need to know the package name of the app because you can launch the application by clicking its icon in the Dash.
