removing dowloaded programs


I have downloaded skype 4.2 to my acer aspire one running the peppermint 3 system.

I would like to uninstall the program completely and leave all the other systems alone if possible as since Mark sorted it for me in December it’s been brilliant.

Does the peppermint 3 system have an add/remove programs like windows?

Many Thanks


Depending on how you installed it, you should be able to uninstall it through one of your package managers.

a) the Software Manager

b) the Synaptic Package Manager

or you could open a terminal (Ctrl+Alt+T) and run:

sudo apt-get remove --purge skype

Yet again Mark fantastic job. All seems to have gone the only think left in the menu under internet is the skype short cut which I can’t seem to remove. thanks again


sudo updatedb

then post the output from:

locate skype.desktop
