Another good place to start might be to check your $PATH.
Type "echo $PATH" and make a note of the directories, you will find many of the installed programs there (they usually end in "/bin" or "/sbin"). I personally find using a searchprogram such as "slocate" quite useful for finding every directory related to a particular program.
