elementary OS 0.4 Loki AppCenter shows FontViewer v3.20.2 as installed.

However, there is no icon available under "Applications"

Although can be searched and launched; was wondering if there is a appropriate way to add the missing icon to appropriate / intuitive location for example under "System Settings"

I recommend Menulibre https://smdavis.us/projects/menulibre/ It's simple GUI to add applications to slingshot and/or change names, icons etc.

However, if you want to keep simple. Make a .desktop entry in /usr/share/applications. https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Desktop_entries


This is the solution for Nautilus, but it's the same for any other app:
Why don't certain GNOME apps show in Slingshot?
