Hi all,
I am now in my second week as a Linux mint (Cinammon) user. However, I installed an Application called Youtube-dl from the software manager but I cannot see the application in the ALL APPLICATIONS list on my laptop. I am running Linux MINT 19.1 CINAMMON and my laptop is HP pavillion DV7. Since installing it, I have restarted the laptop but still cannot see it. This is making me wonder if I am doing something wrong. Could someone please point out where the app is hiding.
Thanks for your attention

youtube-dl is a command line application only, not a graphical (GUI) application .. so won't show up in the menu.

But...

There is a GUI front end for youtube-dl called youtube-dlg

To install it in Mint 19, open a terminal and run these commands in sequence
Code: [Select]
cd ~
then
Code: [Select]
wget https://launchpad.net/~nilarimogard/+archive/ubuntu/webupd8/+files/youtube-dlg_0.4-1~webupd8~bionic9_all.deb
then
Code: [Select]
sudo apt-get install ~/youtube-dlg_0.4-1~webupd8~bionic9_all.deb
enter your password when prompted .. and (if prompted) accept any other changes it needs to make by entering Y

Once installed you'll find it in the menu at:-

Menu > Internet > Youtube DL GUI
