First, see if it's on your menu now.

If not, try typing "audacity" at the command prompt in a terminal window.

I am not familiar with the proggie so I can't tell you anymore than that...sorry.

Good luck.

do a 'whereis audacity' with no quotes. my guess is that it's not installed or you're missing the wxGTK package, since the command audacity should work. i installed via rpms also.
