In Synaptic, after clicking on the "Status" bouton (bottom-left of the
window), you can now select "Installed" in the left panel.

Select your package and then click on "Properties" -> "Installed Files".

The binaries (i.e. executable programs) are usually in /usr/bin or
another "something/bin" directory.

You might need to restart a fresh Synaptic before doing all of this.
