There is a new version of this tutorial available for Ubuntu 14.10 (Utopic Unicorn).

4 Edit Menus

By browsing the Applications menu, you will get an overview of what is already installed on the system. Unfortunately, it doesn't show all installed applications. For example, the BitTorrent client and the CD Player are already installed, but not shown in the menu. Therefore we will edit the menu now to make it list these two applications as well.

Right-click on Applications and select Edit Menus:

Go to the Internet submenu and enable BitTorrent:

Then go to the Sound & Video submenu and enable CD Player. Afterwards, click on Close:

Now both items should be visible in the Applications menu (in their respective submenus).
