How can I make spunk run?
Where Can I find some tutorial?
In the folder bin, command Splunk doesn't work.

The command "splunk" on its own doesn't do much. You need to tell it what to do.

So in your case:
./splunk start

I think the installation guide that Elliot points at provides exactly what you need in the "start splunk enterprise for the first time" section: http://docs.splunk.com/Documentation/Splunk/7.0.2/Installation/StartSplunkforthefirsttime

But glad my suggestion solved your issue, I'll change it to an answer, so you can accept it.

Can you perhaps provide some more details on how you installed it and in which location, also what you have tried so far to get it running (posting the specific commands, rather than your current high level brief descriptions)?

I did the download .tgz file, I did the extraction, went to the directory "Downloads/splunk/bin$ " and tryied to use the comand "splunk".

I only did this steps, in the site I can't find tutorials helping how to get start...

Here's a good guide on installing Splunk on Linux:
