I started using Ubuntu intermittently starting back with version 7.04. I am very used to Synaptic for my software installations and have had very little success with the Ubuntu Software Center. I installed Synaptic first thing with my current version (14.04) and have been unable to find it in the application launcher (Kickoff). I was able to access it by command line ("sudo synaptic"). But, this morning I haven't been able to start it up by the command line. I am still unable to find it in the launcher. The other packages I've installed are there, just not Synaptic.

Any one got an idea on this?
