Hi, I installed Dansguardian, but can't find it in my apps anywhere. I use Linux Mint 5 Elyssa. Anyone know?

Did you download a binary, and if so, which type i.e. .rpm, .deb etc?

All I could see on the website were source downloads, so if you've just got the source you'll need to compile it, in which case, you probably won't see it as a menu item because the source is unlikely to include the post-install scripts to add a menu entry for every distro and session/window manager.

It's generally easy enough to set up a menu entry or a 'shortcut' type link for locally compiled s/w though.
...And its claws are as big as cups, and for some reason it's got a tremendous fear of stamps! And Mrs Doyle was telling me it's got magnets on its tail, so if you're made out of metal it can attach itself to you! And instead of a mouth it's got four arses!

Linux Mint is compatible with Ubuntu and Debian software.
