Launchers / Main Menu App In Ubuntu 13.04

Making launchers has always been pretty easy in ubuntu by running the "main menu" app (actually called "alacarte") and just creating a new one from there.

However this is no longer installed by default in Ubuntu 13.04.  I guess it makes sense as they don't have application launcher menus any more.

So my lazy-ass way to deal with it:

get a terminal up:
     sudo apt-get install alacarte

Then you can launch "main menu" or "alacart" as you have in the past, and create or modify launchers from there.
