Open synaptic and check the file list. You should find one in some bin dir, open it and create a shortcut if you like.

Yes thanks the files are in synaptic, and I found that exe file and nothing happened when I clicked it. I uninstalled and installed it again with no results.

If it use .exe files (windows executables), you need to install wine first.
