flightgear debian can't find the program


hi
I've got Debian etch/lenny

I've tried to install flightgear through apt-get but it
says that the newest version is already installed.

I can't find it in the menu. When I type flightgear in the
terminal nothing happens (can't find it)

$ which flightgear
gives nothing

$locate flightgear

Code:
sycamorex@linux-tree:~$ locate flightgear

As root, run the following command:
Code:
find / -iname *flightgear*
Post the results when you are done.

Also, are you running Etch, Lenny or a mix?

EDIT: Didn't notice the above post. You can ignore this post.
