Hi Wathavy,
do you have a 'debian menu'? That is where it should be.
But it may also be in another menu. It depends on which windowmanager
you use. Kde or gnome? They have different menus.

The windowmanagers like kde and gnome have a 'default' application that
runs when you click on an icon in a file manager. the 'control panel'
usually has a setting to change this.

You may have to 'logout' of the windowmanager for the menu option to
show up. Wait I forgot about 'update-menus'. I think you need to run
that program to fix the menu problem. do 'man update-menus'.
