How to uninstall apps not from Software?

I have Spotify and Discord, both of which do not appear in Software AT ALL as installed, that I do not want. How do I get rid of them?

How did you install them?

For Discord, I think I double clicked the file and did the allow thing. Not sure. It's been a few days and I've been a bit busy. Sorry.

For spotify, I used the Terminal and pasted from the spotify website,

Okay so they are probably .deb files. You can manage/uninstall them via GUI by installing synaptic and search for the package through there

sudo apt install synaptic

k, thanks

You can also double click the installation file and it will give you the option to update or uninstall

Search for the uninstallation codes for ubuntu for the apps you want uninstalled on the internet. You will find them easily :smiley:


Could you confirm which terminal command down below that you used when installing Spotify??

If you used the Snap one, you can remove Spotify by using this command:

sudo snap remove spotify

But, if you used the Debian/Ubuntu one, you can remove it by using this command:

sudo apt-get remove spotify-client

Thanks, that worked!
