Cant find executables to update paths

How do I find paths on ubuntu. I have installed redcar(ide written in ruby similar to textmate) and rvm for ruby. However I cannot locate where the executables are to update my .bashrc.

Any ideas?

Try the locate command.
locate program
will show you what locations are in your path.
