    Where do the programs go?

    I downloaded and installed some programs using Adept, from the repositories. The Add and Remove Programs applet shows them to be "installed" but I don't know how to go to them to use them, because they're not in the menus anywhere; by "menus" I mean the menus for "office" and "internet" and "games" and "development" and "edutainment." They're somewhere, but I don't know how to get to them to use them. Why don't they get put into the menus where they belong? Most of the programs I've gotten from the repositories have gone into the menu, but some haven't.

    Some applications don't show up in the Menus, you have to open them in the command line because they are run there. You can add them to the Menu manually if you want.

    To add them manually just right click inside the menu somewhere and there should be an option to edit it.

    It depends on the programs. Some go under System > Preferences or System > Administration. Some are command line only.
    Two levels higher than a newb.
