Re: How do I run installed applications???

How about this:

rpm -ql firefox which will list the files installed by the rpm package,
from that look for the files that were installed in
the /??/bin /??/??/bin or any other bin directory.

or a simple <which firefox>, without the brackets, should result in
something like /usr/bin/firefox

Hope it helps
