When the calculator is launched, it indicates that the command for the program is io.elementary.calculator. When one opens the terminal and runs io.elementary.calculator it gives

io.elementary.calculator: command not found

What would be the path of the calculator executable to be able to run it from a terminal and also attach a key shortcut to it?

1 Answer 1


The calculator app is packaged as flatpak, you can run it from terminal with flatpak run io.elementary.calculator. Run flatpak list to see the other default flatpak apps which you can run with corresponding command like the calculator.

You can also use the same command like in the terminal to make a keyboard shortcut.
