Ubuntu – I can’t use “remove” to uninstall xtreme download manager


I downloaded xtreme download manager from its website.

The archive I downloaded was xdm-setup-x64.tar.xz

With the setup comes a readme.txt file, I followed it to install.

Now I want to uninstall the xtreme download manager but sudo apt-get remove xdman gives me:

E: Unable to locate package xdman

How can I uninstall it?

  • It seems to be installed completely in /opt/xdman, with xdman.desktop copied to /usr/share/applications/and creating a symbolic link /usr/bin/xdman. So, to completely remove/uninstall, you should remove the link, the desktop file and the installation directory:

    sudo rm /usr/bin/xdman
    sudo rm /usr/share/applications/xdman.desktop
    sudo rm -r /opt/xdman

    This should do it.
