Yeah, I ran into that with TangoGPS.  Go into /usr/share/applications and
edit tangogps.desktop - change the 'Categories' entry to 'Office' and the
icon will appear.

Zhone auto-starts, which is likely what we want since in this setup it
doesn't register to GSM network and work as a phone without Zhone running. 
Drop-down the Top Shelf and you can select 'Home' to see the desktop, or
select one of the three empty squares from the four on the top-center/right
to switch to a different desktop that doesn't have Zhone on it...

I'd be very leery of mixing feeds... I've got mine using (Although I still don't
have any sound but the alarm, will be looking into that more later today)
