Some distros (the RedHat ones and probably others) don't include '.' or
$HOME in $PATH by default. The first thing I do when I set up a new
login users is to make sure '.', $HOME and $HOME/bin are added to $PATH,
preferably at the right end. Its such an automatic action that its easy
to forget you did it years ago.
To dE_logics:

It sounds like your $HOME directory isn't in your search path. Post the
output from this:

echo $PATH

So we can see what your search path looks like.
