Ubuntu/Debian: see files installed by package

Checking the files installed by a package is easy enough with the Synaptic package manager (Right-click package > properties > installed files tab).

Here’s how to get that information without leaving the comfort (cough) of your bash terminal:

$ dpkg-query -L package_name

For example:

$dpkg-query -L flashplugin-installer
