Can't find install program
 
HI! I am a very new linux user with a very poor programming knowledge .I know this may sound very dumb ,actually I am very dumb in this field .I am using mandrake 9.1 and I try to download destop themes and same other program etc...but after I install them I can't seem to find them.Like I just install superkaramba from knosole or shell prompt from the root account .It install successfully ,but I can't find the program anymore and I try searching it in 'Run Command' but no such luck.When I reinstall again ,It said that it is already install.Help me please!

And another thing I am a student who's starting to learn programming and I have to write program using pascal.I had download and install pascal source code and complier from freepascal site but couldn'st use it .I mean I don't know which program to use and how to do thing in my new OS .
Any help is apperecite it.

thanks!!

Well most of the time if you download a program, lets say superkaramba-0.2.34-whatever.rpm, after you install it you should be able to just type 'superkaramba' and it will run as long as it was installed in your PATH. If that doesn't work try updating your locate database(which can take a while) and then searching for it:

updatedb
locate superkaramba | more
locate pascal | more
