Question Just installed deb file (I think?) Now what?

So I've been trying to install Google Music, at first I was having trouble as the Software Center was giving me error messages, and I didn't know how to probably type in the directory path. So now I've got this:

c@L:~$ sudo dpkg -i /home/c/Downloads/google-musicmanager-beta_current_amd64.deb
[sudo] password for c:
Selecting previously deselected package google-musicmanager-beta.
(Reading database ... 126414 files and directories currently installed.)
Unpacking google-musicmanager-beta (from .../google-musicmanager-beta_current_amd64.deb) ...
Setting up google-musicmanager-beta ( ...
Processing triggers for man-db ...

So is it installed? What next? Sorry if this is a simple problem. Did some research before I posted and I'm not sure if the program has been installed or if I need to do more. Thanks!

***edit**** Ok I found it...I should have waited to post! Sorry all. But if anyone could translate any of the above for me that would be amazing, thanks!

You can see what files were installed as a part of any package with "dpkg -L packagename" (*not* package-filename.deb). Eg
dpkg -L google-musicmanager-beta
Actual executables should be stored in a bin/ directory. So, to find the any executables installed
as a part of this package you could try:

dpkg -L google-musicmanager-beta | grep bin
