Re: How do you install a program in Ubuntu?
If it's a command-line program, then there will not be any icons in your Applications menu.

The earlier package you installed has programs, from the listing you gave us:
When you run them in the terminal, you don't have to give the /usr/bin/ part.
The screencast "Where did my installed program go?" in my signature shows you how to locate programs associated with a particular package in Synaptic.

I try to treat the cause, not the symptom. I avoid the terminal in instructions, unless it's easier or necessary. My instructions will work within the Ubuntu system, instead of breaking or subverting it. Those are the three guarantees to the helpee.
