At least in electric it is in robot_model_visualization, so sudo apt-get install ros-electric-robot-model-visualization should do it.

That might work for fuerte as well.

You're gonna need to replace the electric by fuerte for fuerte.

rospack find PACKAGE is a good hint. If you install from sources it should be in your ROS workspace/ROS_PACKAGE_PATH, but unless you want to develop, I'd recommend using the .deb package when available.

I guess you are on Ubuntu Precise and according to REP-0003, electric is not available for Precise. Just install ros-fuerte-robot-model-visualization. It contains the joint_state_publisher for fuerte.
