where is my software??


Hi guys,
I hope you can help me as I m quiet new to Linux. So here is my question: While using the terminal I can easily open an installed software. If I want to delete this software and try to find it via the terminal (find / -name) the systems can t find anything...? I`ve already tried (find /) (find .)...thing is, that some other guy helped me previously to install that specific software, and I` m asking me if he probably helped me to "install" some remote control, as far as that software is a cryptocurrency wallet....any ideas?? Thank you! Jo

Correct, most software resides in /usr/bin and of course there are several smaller bins including the one in /usr/local/. If you are SURE you want to get rid of this app, just delete the binary file in your bin.

Well you could use a file manager with root permission, or sudo rm -v fullpathAndAppName. Run man rm for more help.

Please be careful with rm
Let us know if it works.
