How do I run sunclock after downloading it from Synaptic Package Manager?

I have Ubuntu 8.10. I was trying to figure out how to download Google Earth for Ubuntu and saw the sunclock package in Synaptic Package Manager. I just don't know how to run it after I install it. Thanks in advance for any help.

Welcome to LQ.

You are trying to find the menu entry for it? I think it is in
Applications -> Science -> Geoscience


I've never seen a science menu in Ubuntu, so I could be wrong. OTOH, the newest Ubuntu I have looked at is 6.10, and I ran across a thread from 2006 that indicated some people were trying to get such a menu added, so there could well be one by now.
