http://askubuntu.com – I've searched the net for such information and found different command lines, like these ones: sudo apt-get remove application sudo apt-get remove application* sudo apt-get remove --purge application sudo apt-get remove --purge application* sudo apt-get purge application sudo apt-get purge application* So, what is the correct way? Is it necessary to use that "*"? After that, I also found these commands: sudo updatedb sudo locate application sudo rm -rf (file/folder name) Thanks for your time. (HowTos)
