    Missing synaptic programs after install

    Installed a number of graphics programs through synaptic and can't find them, which is weird. I am using 7.10 Gnome and I have had Ubuntu loaded on another drive and never had them not show up under applications when I installed programs. A few of the programs were gtkmorph, gtkmorph-example and xmorph that I just installed and yet I can't find them. Got any ideas? Thanks--Dwight

    not for all Applications (especially those from universe) there exist Menu entries, but they still exist.
    Just start synaptic, check the package u installed select properties and take a look on the tab installed files. Files with */bin* inside their name are for normal executables. Pick the one you need, got to System-Preferences/Settings-Main Menu and add an entry for this application.

    hope that helps
