This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

    
You said you already installed it, but you ask how to execute a .deb file, which is kind of a "installer" file. Did you already use the .deb file in some way? A double click on it should normally offer you to install the software. Did you do that but do just not find the application or do you really need help regarding the .deb file? –  verpfeilt Oct 8 '13 at 12:49

Open terminal Ctrl+Alt+T and run this command:

sudo dpkg -i filename.deb

I think you want to "execute" a already installed package. In case of AVARICE, try to execute avarice in a terminal.
