I installed Grails using this command :

sudo apt-get install grails-2.0

It installs and it works fine. Now where I can find my installation files?

Since I'm newbie to Ubuntu I couldn't able to guess where the installation file will be for Grails(and for other installations that are done via sudo commands).

Thanks in advance

You can use dpkg -L grails-2.0 to list files from this package.

Also you can use dpkg -S /file/name to find out if the file belongs to any package.
