I installed a program using the following command in the terminal
sudo apt-get install gpsbabel

The system shows the program as installed but when I go to add it to the menu, it does not show up as an option.

How do I create a menu selection to start this program?

Thanks for any help for this nube

Hi.

From having a quick look - it seems command line driven, there is a GUI in build .. popping over here should give you some more recent info on the project --> http://old.nabble.com/New-cross-platform-GUI-committed-td24348940.html

Sorry if this is a silly suggestion, but have you tried logging out and then logging back in, or just rebooting? I find that sometimes when I make changes to icons or menu items, I need to log out and in for the changes to "take hold."
