Typically things are installed to /usr/bin or /usr/sbin. You can check packages by doing whereis packagename or which packagename.

Usually kernel source and headers get installed to the /usr/src directory. You might need to install a package for the kernel source or kernel headers.

To view the files installed by synaptic for a package, select the package, then Properties->Installed Files. Generally, user executables installed by synaptic will go in /usr/bin.

You can see all files installed from package by dpkg -L <packagename> command.
