Please post the commands you used. – saji89 Jun 6 '13 at 11:46

I'm assuming you downloaded with your browser so Chrome and Firefox are set to download to Downloads/ by default f.e. /home/Downloads
If you downloaded with wget than either you specified location or downloaded to your current location (which you can check with pwd)

You can always use

locate <filename>

to find it's location, for example:

locate imeni
/home/<your username>/skripte/imenik
/home/<your username>/skripte/imenik/imenik

than just delete it with:

rm -f /home/<your username>/skripte/imenik/imenik
