Command for where the individual files are for a deb package


Hi. Using rpm, on Fedora for instance, I can use.
rpm -q -l <filename> to see the location of all the files for a specific package. Is there a similar command I can use to see where a specific deb packages files have been installed?

You have several methods available:
Code:
dlocate <package>  <- what I use in general, very fast
dpkg -L <package>
If the package is not installed but you still want to know which files it contains:
Code:
apt-file list <package>
I think apt-file is not standard, you have to install it. You also have to update its database by
Code:
apt-file update

Hi. Thanks for that. It's just what I was looking for. I installed apt-file as well, but havn't tried it yet, as apt-file update is DL'ing 8+MB of data. (on dialup)

Nigel.
