Ubuntu Quick Tip: After my JDK installation, I wanted to verify if it was really installed in my computer. Here's how I verified it

1. Run your terminal.

2. Type:

          $ sudo updatedb
          $ locate java
  • It asked me to enter my password after typing sudo updatedb.
  • updatedb means you are updating the database for locate or locating your app.
  • locate finds files by name.
