That would tend to grab the eye. I just think it's funny that I asked the question on 10-02-04 at 01:13 AM and it was answered by 01:33 AM. 20 minutes for an answer and 12 years and over 1.2 million views it's still going strong. That's some serious longevity for such a simple question and answer.

Thanks. I just wanted to remove Picasa 3.0 which I had d/l directly not using a package. The 'uninstall' available under MENU could not find anything. After reading the first few posts I decided to use:

sudo apt-get --purge remove picasa

after terminal presented me with a screen which I did not fully understand (sorry I failed to copy that :-( ) I was given a Y/n option.

Entered Y and lo and behold it worked like a dream.

A search with hidden files showing found no mention of 'picasa' except for lots of picasa.ini files in my PICTURES folder and some sub folders. Deleted those manually.

Thanks again from an 'ancient' newbie.

apt-get is never aware of any files created in your home directory, including config files and hidden files.
