Did you install it using pacman?  If so,  "pacman -Ql <package>" will list the files in the named package.

If you know the name of the executable, you can also do "which binary-name", and that should give you some clues.

Re: how to find out where a program is installed

hmm it isn't showing me where it was installed this is what I installed
" pacman -U enemy-territory-2.60b-8-x86_64.pkg.tar.gz" I tried  "enemy-territory-2.60b-8-x86_64.pkg.tar.gz" but it doesn't show me anything.
Edit ok I just needed to type  pacman -Ql enemy-territory

ok what if I installed using yaourt is the search the same way?

also how do I uninstall something?

Re: how to find out where a program is installed

try pacman -Ql enemy-territory

or it would take a bit longer you could  do  find / -name enemy or something like that
