I just performed a fresh install of Kubuntu 18.04, and installed Aptik from the ppa shown in the output of apt policy aptik. The thing is that Aptik is not found when searching using the application launcher. Just nothing comes up. Given that the Aptik GUI is dependent on this mechanism, how can I resolve this or get the Aptik GUI back?

apt policy aptik Shows:

sarah@ConvergentRefuge:~$ apt policy aptik aptik: Installed: 18.5.2-0~201805120407~ubuntu18.04.1 Candidate: 18.5.2-0~201805120407~ubuntu18.04.1 Version table: *** 18.5.2-0~201805120407~ubuntu18.04.1 500 500 http://ppa.launchpad.net/teejee2008/ppa/ubuntu bionic/main amd64 Packages 100 /var/lib/dpkg/status


According to the developer's comment on the GitHub issues page for Aptik, installing the aptik-gtk package will help resolve the issue.

    This. As of this release, aptik is a terminal app, and aptik-gtk is the GUI. It confused me too. – Organic Marble May 18 '18 at 1:25
