When you Right-Click on the "Applications" button and select "Edit Menus" ,
you will see a list of Menu items that are currently shown in your Meny list
as well as some that aren't. You may find your app in one of these like
"Debian" or "Programming".
But having said that, there are apps which may not have been configured to
have logos and be added to the Menu list. Typically librariies and other
such system tools fall under this category but there are a lot of pure user
applications also that lack this characteristic.

All said and done.... whuch application are you installing ? ;-)
