I'm writing a python script and I'm using aptitude and update-grub in
the script. Currently I just use the abolute path to the bins ie.
/usr/bin/aptitude. Ultimately I'd like to package it and distribute
it as a deb. What's the recommended way to get these paths so they
will work on any user's machine? Are there any environment vars that
I should use or a service of some kind?
Any help or pointing in the right direction would be appreciated or if
there is a better list to post this let me know.
