Well, I have installed "serna-free-4.2-4.2.0-20091009.i686.rpm". It hasn't put any icon I can click to start it, there is nothing in /bin or /usr/bin, so I don't even know how to start it.
One way to view the files an RPM is installing is using the -ql option of rpm, that is
rpm -ql serna-free | grep /bin/
Which is helpful for the technically inclined, but not for the end user.
For a perfect user experience (in an ideal world), installing a package foo should make 'something' of the name foo appear in the system. This something could be - a desktop icon, - a menu entry, - something the desktop search can find, or - (at least!) a command on the command line.
Just my humble opinion, ignoring any feasability.
I checked out serna yesterday to see, if a desktop file could be easily added. Just to find out, that serna does not even compile on 11.2 and up.
