Just installed my first program manually, how do I open it? (Ubuntu)

I installed a program called EasyH10 for my mp3 player via a .rpm package. All is fine and dandy, but I don't know how to access the program. Help would be appreciated.

Edit: I figured it out no more than 5 seconds after posting this. How do I delete this topic?

I think there is a port in the "universe" repository. Check your /etc/apt/source.list to make sure universe is enabled. Then sudo apt-get update and sudo apt-get install easyh10. Or use synaptic to check the repositories and search for easyh10, click and install.

You could enter the command "rpm -q easyh10 --filesbypkg" to get a listing of all of the files in the package.
Most user commands are installed in the /usr/bin/ directory. If you install from a tarball, they may be installed in the /usr/local/bin directory.

I dont know what package are you referring to or how you installed it,
but if you have installed it successfully then you should be able to run it on a terminal like this

or something similar, if you are using bash, then press tab after typing easy.
