Hello,

You don't need putty on linux, since linux already has the commands needed. What exactly are you trying to do?

Cheers,

Josh

Talking uninstaller like add or remove program

uninstaller software like add or remove program but it can completely remove all file clear in any program it would never leave some piece of file from any program .

This doesn't make sense, this is not how software distribution in Linux works.

one ***HUGE*** thing to try to remember is that Linux is NOT Windows. It is very different, don't expect things to work the same way, and don't look for exact like for like equivalents to acheive things you are used to doing under Windows. it is often MUCH simpler on Linux, so much so, people can sometimes struggle to realise it's even there at all.

I think what the OP is trying to say is that when he "uninstalls" putty, he wants putty's settings erased, along with the keys it stores, etc. The settings will be stored within your home directory, under it's own directory; something like ".putty" or of that nature. You will want to delete this directory to remove the settings, keys, etc.
