Could it be installed somewhere else?

Two useful tools for checking this are: 

- "which program" which will check whether 'program' is on your current
  Linux search path

- "locate name" which will list all absolute pathnames that contain
  'name'. 'name' will also be found if its a partial name. 
  Note that locate is fast because it looks up a database that's updated
  once a day. Run 'updatedb' manually if you suspect the database is out
  of date due to some package install or upgrade.

  Hint: if locate finds large numbers of hits, try "locate name | less"
  to see the hits page by page. Less also has good abilities to search
  within the text it displays. Learning how to use its search function
  is time well spent.
