installed trial rpm in PCLOS--cant find executable

Subject says it all. Synaptic says the rpm is installed, and there are a whole batch of files, but I can't find the
executable. Nothing appears in the PC menu, Typing crossover in the terminal produces command not found.
I want to see if WordPerfect, either X4 or X3 will install and run, and if it will, I'll buy the product.

The Fine Print below says this is not a support forum, use the ticket system, byt when I went to the ticket before, it was for Macintosh. (And if this is not a support forum, then what on earth is it?)

All assistance appreciated--doug

It's "not a support forum" in that it's not an "official" support mechanism, which means that as far as our (small) staff is concerned, direct tickets/emails/phone calls from users come first, and then look at forums when we have a chance. There are lots of helpful and knowledgeable users/advocates who cruise the forums, as well, so help can often be found, but the "this is not a support forum" disclaimer essentially means "be forewarned - there's a non-zero chance that no one will every reply to this."

Anyhoo - I don't recommend installing Crossover on any Linux system using the Synaptic package manager. To start fresh, please try running Crossover's uninstall function to completely remove it:

$ /opt/cxoffice/bin/cxuninstall

followed by

$ sudo /opt/cxoffice/bin/cxuninstall

as per the instructions, here:

and then attempt a re-install using "rpm" in terminal as advised, here, about a third of the way down the page:
