Installing Spark on Simply Linux

Hi all!

Today I tried to install Spark 2.8.3 RPM on Simply Linux (ALT Linux 8.2).
I downloaded spark-2.8.3.rpm and run it with terminal:

[root@host-15 Downloads]# rpm -Uhv spark-2.8.3.rpm
Подготовка… ##################################################
Spark ##################################################
Running /usr/lib/rpm/posttrans-filetriggers
[root@host-15 Downloads]#

After this, I can’t found any Spark icon in menu. No errors, no missing packages.

How do I run it? Help me, please.

I think you should find startup.sh in /usr/share/spark/bin/. And the not realeased 2.9.0 is installed into /opt/spark/ if i remember correctly.

Thank you very much!

It works!

I type in terminal:
[user@host-15 ~]$ su
Password:
[root@host-15 ~]# cd /usr/share/applications/
[root@host-15 applications]# medit Spark.desktop

Fill:
[Desktop Entry]
