How to I look for and uninstall programs though the command line in Fedora?
 
Hey, I made an account for RescueTime (a service that can help you be productive by showing you what websites you visit, how long you stay on them, and can block distracting websites), but then decided I no longer wanted to use it. So I uninstalled the RescueTime extension in the browsers I use. And I tried to uninstall the desktop and PC RescueTime app, but I'm not sure if I fully everything related to RescueTime off my Fedora Linux PC. So is there anyway to check though the terminal to see if it's still there? And if it's still there, can any of you guys please let me the know the proper command to uninstall an app on Fedora Linux. I'm still new to Linux in general, so I appreciate the help!

what makes you think it didn't uninstall correctly, how did you uninstall it and how did you install it?

Apt get purge if that uses apt get. You can delete anything that is related to it it not using the commands of that distro using rm. though that will corrupt its database on what’s installed and what’s not

You can get away with deleting anything it added to your home without damaging the systems package database. And what cordx asked.

@BW-userx. Fedora doesn't use APT.

@OP. RescueTime for Fedora is shipped as an RPM package. If rpm -q rescuetime says "package rescuetime is not installed" then it's not installed. As for whatever cruft it left in your home directory, probably under ~/.config and/or ~/.local/share you can safely remove it as BW-userx said above.
