I'm wondering where the installer for Dell printer drivers puts its files. I didn't find any in "All My Files", also the contents of my Application/Dell folder stayed unchanged.

Is there a way to monitor the installation process more closely so as to able to follow which files are created/destroyed and where ?

  • Drivers are installed in locations which do not show up in "All My Files". If you are trying to solve printer problems, a question focusing on that might yield better results.

  • I'm not sure about how to view what an installer does, but you can watch the install script using lsof to try to figure out what files it opens.
