The easiest way is to issue the list-files option of dpkg from a terminal.

  1. Open a terminal with Ctrl+Alt+T.
  2. Enter the following command:
    dpkg --listfiles opencv-doc

You can also find the information from Synaptic Package Manager, if you prefer a GUI, but you'll have to install synaptic from the Ubuntu Software Centre first.
