View Full Version : [ubuntu] Package installation and menu listings

December 21st, 2009, 05:17 AM
After installing some programs through Synaptic Package Manager they seem to vanish in the system. It's difficult to locate them through "Applications", and in many instances they don't even get listed in the menu. I know there are ways to locate the installed packages, what I would like to see is a transparent way to install packages so that the user can control the destination in the menu at install-time.
