question about synaptic package manager
I just recently began using linux for more than just browsing the internet (I am currently running ubuntu). I learned how to install programs with synaptic package manager, but they are not showing up in the application menu. Any ideas of what the problem might be? Using the add/remove under the applications menu works, but I can't access repositories that way.
