Web-based apps like that don't tend to turn up on the main desktop menus.

You should be able to access the newly installed scripts by browsing to http://<hostname>/phpmyadmin (which if you are working on the same machine you have installed it on will be http://localhost/phpmyadmin) using Firefox or what-ever other browser you have installed.

If that URL does not work, have a look in the config file that was added to the directory /etc/apache2/conf.d when the package was installed to see what virtual directories it is creating. (if you are using lighttpd, or something else, rather then Apache, then this config detail will be in a slightly different place of course)
