Angry How do I launch newly installed software


I have installed an rpm for Lotus Notes for example, the package seems to install fine but I don't see any icons to launch the Notes executable? How do I find and launch Notes?

try listing files of the RPM installed from command line
rpm -ql package-name-without-rpm-extension
and launch it from the command line the executable usually in /usr/bin or /usr/local/bin
