thank you both for your help and advice

 The package description says "interface::commandline" so that might explain why it's not in the menu.

I had not noticed this and it explains a lot.

and I did not know about

ls /usr/bin/dvb*

so thanks for the education.

I was hoping for a dvb app that has a GUI, so it's back to searching for me.

when I use apt install dvb-apps

the machine responds with

 /home/mine# apt install dvb-apps
Reading package lists... Done
Building dependency tree       
Reading state information... Done
dvb-apps is already the newest version (1.1.1+rev1500-1.1+b1).
0 upgraded, 0 newly installed, 0 to remove and 0 not upgraded.


dpkg -L dvb-apps

THe machine responds with as a user

 $ dpkg -L dvd-apps
dpkg-query: package 'dvd-apps' is not installed
Use dpkg --info (= dpkg-deb --info) to examine archive files,
and dpkg --contents (= dpkg-deb --contents) to list their contents.

as su the command dpkg -L dvb-apps

lists about 100 dvb-apps  files from a list of several hundred.

most appear to be in the /usr/share/doc/dvb-apps/examples/test/       folder

Neither as su or a user is there a man page.

I'm running ASCII in a machine with 4g ram and an I3.

I've tried to install, several times, dvb-apps, through both the command line and synaptic package manager, and though apparently sucessful it does not appear on any menu.

During the install dvb-scan-tables is also installed.

During one install attempt I got an error message stating

W: Download is performed unsandboxed as root as file '/root/.synaptic/tmp//tmp_sh' couldn't be accessed by user '_apt'. - pkgAcquire::Run (13: Permission denied)

Which I do not understand, but has me thinking dvb-apps is sandboxed. But I am probably wrong.

So what have I got to do to get dvb-apps working correctly for a normal user?

I've thought about installing from source, but the instruction-

cd dvb-apps

does not make sense. Should it be cd /user/share/dvb-apps?

As a secondary interest I'd like to know how to unsandbox an app.
