OK, here's the fishing rod :-)

Go, no, *run* and install package "apt-file". Issue apt-file update
in a terminal, and then:

  apt-file search xcolor

(or whatever string you come up). Apt-file searches for packages
containing files matching the pattern. You can control whether the
pattern is interpreted as regex or as a literal (sub)string.
