In this video, I show you 3 ways to uninstall apps and programs in Ubuntu. The first 2 don’t use the command line (other than to install Synaptic if you don’t have it) whereas the third one does, giving you more control.
Get Synaptic: ‘sudo apt-get install synaptic’
Look up packages via command prompt: ‘dpkg –list’
Remove package (including all preferences): ‘sudo apt-get –purge remove [package name]’
Remove package (leaving preferences): ‘sudo apt-get remove [package name]’
