From your file browser, go to File System > usr > bin

There are options possible too for some applications. Take Superkaramba for instance. I am rarely satisfied with a pre-made monitor as I like to change the content and/or the background images. If I choose to download the themes from the program GUI directly, they end up in my system files. If on the other hand I choose to install from a file location such as "themes" (and download the theme into this first manually), then I can simply edit the theme file at this location which I find a lot easier.
