View Full Version : Help needed with Linux Mint.

12-03-2018, 07:25 PM
There is an app/program on Mint by the name of 'Eqonomize' which is an accounting app which uses KDE & had to be installed & run in a Terminal. I want to uninstall it but the Terminal does not recognise 'uninstall' or 'remove' as commands.

sudo uninstall eqonomize

What should I enter to uninstall the app?

sudo apt purge eqonomise

You could do 'apt remove', but purge gets rid of it's system config files too (if you have any data in your home folder, that is not removed - you have to delete it manually if you want it gone too).

Thanks for that, it worked a treat :)

If you're not familiar with terminal, especially using apt, you can use synaptic package manager, or software manager which are gui applications for installing/removing software.

To use the terminal and to get help with most commands (except you need to know the commands to use) you can do <command> --help or man <command>, e.g apt --help, man apt
