how do i play game i have installed

Hello All,
Sorry if this is a bit of a noob question but I have just installed the game xconq on my Suse 9.2 system and I don't know how to play it. I installed itusing the rpm and it isn't showing up in any of the menues and just typing "xconq" in a console doesn't work. The program is located in the /usr/share/xconq directory but I have no idea how to get it to execute. Your help would be very much appreciated.

Check /usr/share/xconq for an executable and run that as user. To run it from the command line using a single name symlink to the excutable from /usr/bin like: ln -s /usr/share/xconq/executable

Sorry, but I am not able to find any executable files in /usr/share/xconq and the "ln -s /usr/share/xconq/executable" command hasn't appeared to have done anything. Any help would be appreciated.

you try this command

rpm -qlp "your game RPM" > output-filename

open output-filename and look for files in those bin directories
it might be just a script to fire up your game like startxconq or runxconq and something like that

good luck
