I have installed QGIS, and I use gdal_proximity.py to get a proximity raster, I would like to know where can I find that file on an ubuntu 14.04 distribution.

I ran find command in the .qgis2 directory but got nothing


it's in /usr/bin or /bin depending where your gdal is installed.

  • yes found it there, thanks, I thought it would be as an extension to qgis – Hicham Zouarhi Sep 16 '16 at 15:28

    locate gdal_proximity.py will help if you're stuck – dmci Sep 16 '16 at 18:57
  • @dmci I wanted to avoid searching on the whole file system, it takes a lot of time, thanks for your answer – Hicham Zouarhi Sep 17 '16 at 9:52
