Has it shown up in the menu, probably in Internet or System Tools? If so, you can drag the menu entry and drop it on the desktop to give a desktop launcher, which I presume was what you wanted. If it hasn't appeared in the menu, come back and tell us and I'll tell you how to solve that problem.

Try this:

ALT+F2

and type the program name. You don't need icons in Linux.

See the following URL which may be useful to you:

I'm guessing the same may well apply to more recent versions of Fedora.

You are welcome. Just in case anyone else finds this, and the URL I cited disappears, then it read as follows:

Quote:
... actually at first I was a bit confuse of how to install konqueror in fedora 10, I kept trying to use command like this

yum install konqueror

but the output is that yum cannot find any package that name konqueror, so after much time searching in the internet I found that there is no package name konqueror in fedora repository. you have to install kdebase if you want to have konqueror in a gnome environment. so I do this

yum install kdebase

and I now have a fully functioning konqueror in fedora 10

Fedora 15 - Gnome.

# yum install kdebase : Will provide /usr/bin/konqueror .
There is no package konqueror for any Fedora.
A random / alien rpm package : May not provide an Icon.

Assume Gnome 3 :
There is a search field. Type ko : The konqueror Icon appears.

It provides various applications, infrastructure files and libraries for the K Desktop Environment.
