Where can I find the program I downloaded?
 
I want to open the program called "record my desktop" I downloaded from synaptic but I am unable to locate it in the mint menu.
I assume it would have an icon or something but I can't seem to spot it. Can someone help me find where that would be?

Oh, yes it does
 
recordmydesktop does have a GUI frontend. It's called, unsurprisingly, gtk-recordmydesktop and is available through synaptic on a default install.

If the OP wants a start menu item, he shalt have one by installing gtk-recordmydesktop using synaptic. The menu item appears under the sound & video menu.
