  This is what I do to find out. Suppose the offending executable is "plasma-desktop":

$ which plasma-desktop
$ dpkg -S /usr/bin/plasma-desktop
kdebase-workspace-bin: /usr/bin/plasma-desktop
$ apt-cache showsrc kdebase-workspace-bin|head -n1
Package: kdebase-workspace

Your debug package will have '-dbg' suffix (if it exists), so:
$ sudo apt-get install kdebase-workspace-dbg

Hope that helps,
