type this to find first:

sudo updatedb

locate (filename) "if you require a specific installed program"

then

sudo find / -name *.*>>(or the name of the file) -print

hope it helps

You can also get a list of all installed packages in Synaptic by opening it, then clicking on "Status", then selecting "Installed".
