I just installed my first program using "apt-get install" ....... for the second time. I had it just before I rebuilt the O/S. The thing is, last time it installed an icon onto the desk top. This time, nothing. I had to search my hard drive to find an executable to run it. No, it isn't in the applications menu.

The application is Lmms, a music sequencer.

Try running the command from the terminal. You can always create a menu item/launcher later. Some applications don't have any launchers.

Its ok. I figured it out. I don't know why it didn't do it automatically but the MAKE an icon....
Right click the desk top.
Choose "create Launcher"

Tip:- find the executable first.
