Finally I got "povray-3.6" installed on my computer. When I type in "povray" in
the terminal it shows only a list of commands.

Where do I launch the GUI?

Okay, I found out that there is no frontend installed by default. I installed
Pyvon but when I type in "Pyvon" a terminal opens and closes instantly. I wasn't
able to catch the text with a screen.

No such thing available. Unless you would consider KPovModeler as an option, which I
don't.
Povray on Linux is a text-based experience. I personally use Kate as the editor.

You might want to take a look at MORAY. It's a (separate) GUI program that was
originally made specifically for POV-Ray, although it hasn't been updated since
POV-Ray v3.5.  I *think* it will work with v3.6, but I don't know for sure.

Here's the link...
http://www.stmuc.com/moray/menews.html

You might also want to do a search of the newsgroups here, for 'Moray', to see
what other users have said about it.

The MORAY project was taken over by the POV-Ray development team, but a new
version is still 'in the future.' To use the current (old) version, you will
need a (free) password. Here's some info about that, taken from an old newsgroup
announcement...

Moray Modeller - Free Registration

As Moray was acquired by POV-Ray earlier this year, and until a new version is
released without a registration system, users may download and register Moray
for free using the following details:
Name: POV-Ray User
Number: BFDDE769

Sorry, I should have noticed that Moray is a Windows-only program; not for
Linux.

There is no GUI. Your typical POV-Ray workspace on unix will look
something like this:
