TestDisk doesn't run under LinuxMint 19.1 [solved]

I can install TestDisk from the Software Manager and it displays as being
installed, but when I look for it in the Programs Menu it does not exist.

I have tried Launching TestDisk from the Display Screen in Software Manager
using the "Launch" button, but nothing happens, even though it is shown as
being installed.

If I remember correctly, TestDisk is designed to be run from the terminal.

try typing testdisk in a terminal. It's a command line utility.

OK, thanks.
The Launch Button had me confused.

Yes, it works OK from Terminal.
