[Tex/LaTex] Installed texlive, but can’t find it on hard drive


I am using KUbuntu 14.04 and just re-installed it after setting up a new computer. Instead of texlive-full I installed sudo apt-get install texlive texlive-lang-german texlive-doc-de texlive-latex-extra from ubuntuusers.de. I also installed Kile.

1.) Now, when I try to identify my texlive-folder or wherever Linux installed the stuff with locate texlive and/or locate tex-live I can not find it. So where is it?
2.) Also I don't know how to choose PATH for tlmgr.

I am really afraid of installing anything again or removing something, since last time, it just totally messed up everything big time!! Even dpkg was damaged and I had to set uo KUbuntu again. I really don't have time for this now, so what went wrong and what can I do?

Thanks for helping.

Try the command

kpsewhich latex.ltx

to locate your TeX installation. On my system it gives the location
