I built a linux OS on my computer using your computational

I couldn't find any of the software that's supposed to be bundled with

been a mistake so I attempted to install the software manually but the
terminal kept saying that the software was already installed.
Am I not seeing something? How do I access the installed software? My
only experience with linux was with ubuntu an debian and it's
relatively limited so excuse this question if it's simple.
No, you're not missing anything. :)
It depends on the software really. Some modelling tools aren't
graphical at all. Instead they are libraries that you use. As an
example, if you wanted to use NEST, you write your simulation in Python
as shown in their documentation. You can use a Python IDE like
PyCharm to do the programming, but NEST itself does not have a graphical
interface. (I think one is being developed, though.)
Neuron is similar. It does have a UI, but not to write the actual
simulation bits. One can now use Python for Neuron also.
For other tools that aren't shown in the graphical list, you may need to
run them using the terminal. Their individual documentations will tell
you what the "executable" to be run is.
Does that make sense? If you can tell us what specific tool you want to
work with, we'll be able to provide more specific documentation.
