Finding installed packages


Alright, I am very new to Linux (just installed Fedora core yesterday) and have some questions.

I found an RPM package for FCE Ultra and it installed without a problem. But now, I don't have any idea how to run it, or where to find it. I searched for it in Search Files but can't find it that way either. When I ran the RPM again to make sure it was unpacked, it said the package was already installed. Any clue on how I'd run it?

Thanks for the quick reply. When I do the rpm -ql <package> | grep \/bin\/ the command seems to be successful, but it doesn't give me any info. When I pressed man rpm I got the huge details list, but didn't seem to find how to locate my package. Sorry I am very new to this stuff.

No output at all? Weird.

Try
rpm -ql <package> | less
then, and scroll through the list of installed
files...

Wow. When I do that I get "Package is not installed (END) although anytime I click on it it says it's already installed. How odd.
