Hi,


what command or method did you use to isntall "app Grid". Also, what is "app Grid"? What does it do?

Evo2.

PS. I notice that you call it both "app Grid" and "app Grad". Please clarify.

Installing software from outside the repos is not a safe or reliable thing to do. Just my 2 cents as I'm not going to an unknown link to see what you installed...

Hi,

did you try to remove it using your package manager? Eg
Code:
sudo apt-get purge appgrid
If not, please try it. If it doesn't work post the exact errors returned.

Hmm, removing a package like that is one of the most basic operations of a package manager. I strongly suggest you learn some of the basics of apt-get.

Note that you should also probably remove the ppa that provided that package. Eg
Code:
sudo add-apt-repository -r ppa:appgrid/stable
