    Open a terminal and type the name of the app. See if that helps.

    The terminal way should work. BTW you can't put any spaces there(if you just want to run the program), so look at your downloaded file and take just the name(without extension or version) and put it in the terminal... see if it works.

    it means it's not installed, or something.
    try to install it again and type "prozgui" in the terminal
