You may need to add it via the "edit menus" button that shows you your 
applications (called, I think, the 'Main Menu'), etc... left click, 
select 'Edit Menus,' then select  a menu area you wish to access it from 
the 'Main Menu,' select 'New Item,' the properties window should 
appear... type in a program name (here, you could put FontMatrix, or 
something like this, type in 'fontmatrix' in the command line... You 
could, for simplicity sake here, just use the default icon... but it is 
possible to find an included icon... then click on 'OK' That should be 
it. Hope this is clear enough.

P.s., you could first test that command line by typing in your terminal, 
'fontmatrix' exactly like this, it should show up. & of course, you 
could use this as your preferred method of opening this (or other 
programs) if you wished.
