Such packages you find them in /opt/ros/indigo/share If you want to get the path for a specific package, say urdf_tutorials, you can type: roscd urdf_tutorial/

Any ROS package you install using a package manager (e.g., apt-get) will be installed in the default ROS installation path (which would normally be /opt/ros/<distro>/).

If you know the name of the package, just run:

$ rospack find <package_name>

The ROS tutorial Navigating The Filesystem is a great source of information on how to use rosbash commands such as rospack.

Running nodes from those tutorial packages is exactly the same as running nodes from any other package.
