I suggest that whenever you install an "end user" package that you:

1.0 Do a "dpkg -L <package> | less" and look for:
  1.1 help files (.txt, .html, ??)
  1.2 config files
  1.3 example files
  1.4 man pages, info files

Read the stuff under "/usr/share/doc/<package>" especially the:

Even after all that, you may not get the information you want.

I highly reccommend a "thorough" google search (using lynx and the d
