The first is, did you reboot? Often an app appears in the menu only

I think you may have meant, logout/login.

No, I meant "reboot".

But, I've never seen the need to do that either. I've not encounter a
situation where an application, proper installed, didn't show up in the
"Application Launcher Menu".

Then "You haven't really experienced life as it really is!" :-)

Most of the time what you state is correct but there have been many times when this did not/does not hold.

Only last week I installed an app (cannot remember now which one it was) which did not show up anywhere; I had the exact same situation as James. It only showed up when I *rebooted* - and I mean rebooted.

I think it all has to do with the fact that Linux keeps apps/config files in RAM when they are running and simply changing users (logout/login) does not clear what is retained in RAM.

Attorney: And was it a male or a female?
Witness: Unless the circus was in town I'm going with male.
