I installed a new program but I can't find it. I want to put a shortcut on the dock. So how do I find the icon for the new program?

    What version of Ubuntu are you using, and what desktop environment? – wjandrea Feb 11 '19 at 14:55

    The latest Ubuntu. I don't know how to find the version but that should be on the internet. I'm not sure what you mean by "desktop environment"... all I know it is the one that comes with Ubuntu. – eddyq Feb 11 '19 at 15:22
  • Linux eddys-ubuntu 4.18.0-15-generic #16-Ubuntu SMP Thu Feb 7 10:56:39 UTC 2019 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux – eddyq Feb 11 '19 at 19:42

    @j-money why do you think uname -a would be useful here? It doesn't show which flavor is in use... – Zanna Feb 12 '19 at 7:51
  • @j-money ... can't you tell that I'm new at Linux? What gave you clue that I knew what I was doing? Comments like yours are far from productive. – eddyq Feb 13 '19 at 17:24

Click the box of dots at the lower left. Then use the search option to find the new program. Then right click and select Add to Favorites. But sometimes the program just shows small icons. In that case there is no right click option ... I don't know what to do about that. An example is "Wine".
