Use synaptics to (un)install programs - it's called "Install software" in the menu and right there on the left hand side of the menu.
Could you be a bit more specific about your bluetooth problem? I don't really get it....

For a graphical uninstall program, press Alt+F2 then type "gksu synaptic" and find the program you want to uninstall, then right click and hit "mark for removal" and then when you are done marking programs you want to uninstall, hit the "Apply" button.

In Synaptic click the status tab and select installed packages. Then you can pick what you want to uninstall. :roll:

if ya install application without using synaptic
As long as it is a .deb package you find it in synaptics. If you have used a .run file you probably find an uninstaller in the program folder - if not just delete the folder. Could leave some config files as left overs, but wiht the size of todays hard disks... (and they don't interfere with anything)
