Ubuntu / Linux : Delete (uninstall) an application package

It’s easy to uninstall using apt-get tool (if you used apt-get tool before to install the application package).

To search for name of the package in the system, type:

dpkg --list | grep <search term>

for example: dpkg –list | grep “Grub” (try to find grub in the package list command)

In order to remove the application with app-get, type in:

sudo apt-get --purge remove <application name>



For example: sudo apt -purge remove grub-customzier
