As a new user of Debian you would be well advised to install the

how would one access this package? I seem to have it already installed.. I
always have used google.com/linux and did a "debian +question" search.



dpkg -L 'package'

Show the list of files and location of them.

With debian-reference(for english language):

dpkg -L debian-reference-en
