Ok then, please state the file names of the programs you're trying to install, so we can see their versions and if they're .rpm or .tar.gz etc

You cant seem to run them and thus want to remove them?
Tried whereis qtella or whereis xnap? Those commands should give you a directory (probably something/bin/) where the main executable program is.

you would type that in a terminal window.
Try Alt + F2, this will give you a "run command" box, type xnap and see if the program starts, you can type it in a terminal too.

I actually prefer it from a terminal because you can see any error message preventing the program to run, and I always have a console open anyway.

Are you using KDE or Gnome? Either way, is there not a menu option to Run (command).... Try those whereis commands in there.

AxeZ has a point...
