You can try running
yumex --root

in a terminal

What distribution ?

fedora or rhel with SELinux ?

You don't have to remove SELinux from the start up, just set it to permissive. Then you'll get a warning if yumex is doing something SELinux doesn't like.

Does your answer mean yumex is working ?

setenforce 0 =>i think this one will set SElinux to permissive,i did it too but i confront that error again,
i don'w know if youmex will be working or not because when i run the command yumex --root,yumex Gui starts but gave me this error:
fatal error:backend-not-running
backend not running as expected (yumex will close),
and then i press ok to exit

yum is the backend to yumex, so does yum work by itself ?

Why did you think that Yumex the install Process faster ?
I do not use yumex anymore , but in the past I just install it with the command as root yum install yumex and use yumex from the GUI

There are lots of issues with yumex and it not using yum properly.
