I'm done with Windows. So I just installed Ubuntu 16.04. I followed the instructions on this website of how to install GNS3 onto Ubuntu 16.04 via the 3 commands in the prompt.

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:gns3/ppa
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install gns3-gui

Now when I search for GNS in my apps it's not there. If I try to install again the prompt says GNS3 is up to date. What to do now?

    You could try to enter gns and then Tab twice in a terminal. Or look at the content of the package with dpkg -L gns3-gui to find the command that starts the GUI. – Thomas Feb 10 '18 at 18:31

GNS3 executable is located in /usr/bin/gns3, so it may be launched by gns3 command.

Note: older version from official Ubuntu repository has icon in Education category.
