I can usually fire op blender via the terminal by executing blender. This worked out of the box, when using snap. However, the version in snap was very old so I found a newer version in flatpak.

Blender is installed with flatpak only now, and sadly the terminal does not know the word anymore. Command 'blender' not found, but can be installed with: sudo apt install blender

I see the program is in /var/lib/flatpak/app/org.blender.Blender/current/active/export/share/applications/

enter image description here

I understand I need to do some path stuff in .bash_rc but after many attempts I would love your help

You will have to run the command flatpak run org.blender.Blender.

You can call it with blender, by adding the following line to your .bashrc(note: it is NOT "bash_rc", which you mentioned in the question)

alias blender='env -u SESSION_MANAGER flatpak run org.blender.Blender'
