It does here:


It's in the Universe repository, whose default state I can't remember
but it's not 'main' so it's feasible that it's not enabled by default.
Is that the source of the supposed need to use the terminal to install
it? What's this terminal process? I'm intrigued as to what would cause
a package to be available to (presumably) apt*, but not to the
software centre.
