Where can I find the bitcoind bundled with bitcoin-qt in Ubuntu?

2

I read that bitcoind comes bundled with bitcoin-qt, but I can't find it anywhere on my system after installing bitcoin-qt. I'm using Ubuntu.

If you start bitcoin-qt with the -server option, it also runs an RPC server, making it functionally equivalent to bitcoind.

They are two different things. If you want to install bitcoind you will need to install it

apt-get install bitcoind

But you can't run both at the same time, since bitcoin-qt is the same as bitcoind but with a nice interface while bitcoind is just the daemon.
