[maemo-developers] how to show installed application icon on the App manager's Uninstall menu

Hi there;

I have a question regarding the way applications are installed/removed 
using the Application manager.
Since I failed to install my application using a .install file with a 
local repository. I wonder if an application package was installed from 
command-line "using dpkg -i package_name.deb" can it -at least- be 
uninstalled using the app manager ??
does it have a chance to appear on Hildon application Manager's 
Uninstall list ?? If it is possible, how to do that?

the packages installed by "dpkg -i" can be seen and removed by the 
apt-get command (apt-get remove <installed_paclkge_name> manages to find 
and uninstalls it  ).  So, why the app manager can't see them? Isn't it 
a GUI for apt ? or it uses another method to install/update/remove maemo 
packages ?

thanks in advance ;
