Good morning Peter,

Well I tried your suggestion, and it didn't work right off hand, but a 
few minutes later I looked at the applications menu and the 'Debian 
menu' was listed with all of the apps showing...

So update-menus was it...Great!

Thanks for taking the time to bring that to my attention...
