I have two version of NetBeans installed in Fedora 15. I am unable to open them for the past three days.

I would like to remove the existing ones completely but they were not installed via yum. How do I remove them?

I tried the following, but in Gnome 3 if I type NetBeans it still shows two icons.

# rm -fr netbeans-dev-20110*
# rm -fr /usr/share/applications/netbeans-Build 201105230400.desktop
# rm -fr /usr/share/applications/netbeans-Build 201107150600.desktop
