Since you used a deb package, the package manager should have picked it
up. So I would start Synaptic, then locate your package searching for
its name. then click on the "Properties" button in the toolbar. In the
window that pops up, click on the tab named "Installed files", and
browse the list of file until you find a file that's likely to be the
program binary. Start looking for files that are in /usr/bin, that's
where you most likely will find it.
