How to find out which (not installed) package a file belongs to?

I usually used avisplit command to split avi files. I noticed that I should install the package transcode.

$ man transcode


       transcode_export(1) , transcode_filter(1) , transcode_import(1) , avifix(1) , avisync(1) , avimerge(1) , avisplit(1) , tcprobe(1) , tcscan(1) ,
       tccat(1) , tcdemux(1) , tcextract(1) , tcdecode(1) , tcmodinfo(1) , tcxmlcheck(1) , transcode(1)

though the command avisplit does not work.

my OS: Ubuntu 12.04 LTS

Do you know where is the problem?

  • What is the output of $PATH? What about type -p avisplit?

  • $PATH is /usr/local/sbin:/usr/local/bin:/usr/sbin:/usr/bin:/sbin:/bin:/usr/games. type -p avisplit shows nothing.

  • The SEE ALSO section of a man page is NOT a list of what other programs are in the same package or even a depended upon package. All it means is the man pages in SEE ALSO are related in some way.

This page says that is should be present in the transcode-utils package for your version of ubuntu. However, it seems to be transferred in the transcode package for further releases,as this page shows.
