Default How to run last-installed application?

I recently installed checkbox but I cannot figure out how to run it:

Good to know, but to answer the OP's initial question, you can always have a
look at what the package you just installed has inside:

$ dpkg -L <packagename>

Normally the binaries will be installed into /usr/bin, /usr/sbin or the like
(minus the /usr if they're more system software).

Example:

jaska@lagavulin:~ 02:55:00 $ dpkg -L bash
/.
/bin
/bin/bash
/etc
/etc/skel
/etc/skel/.bashrc
/etc/skel/.profile
/etc/skel/.bash_logout
/etc/bash.bashrc

Thanks Larry but I am on Kubuntu so I just need the binary's name.

Tab-completion taught me that checkbox-cli is the command to pull up
the CLI interface. Locate wasn't finding the binary in /usr/bin until
I ran updatedb (which I should have done from the beginning).

Running dpkg -L on the checkbox-cli package (which I installed at the
same time as checkbox) does show me the binary in /usr/bin.
