If freshly installed programmes don't appear in you start menu (and most wont) I normally do this on command line:
(to actually find out where it is. You should see the binary pop up in this list, normally in a location like /sbin or /usr/local/bin)
then just type the name of the binary you just found which is normally the name of the programme, xmms for xmms, ogle for ogle etc.
