I wrote a post about how to install Adobe AIR on Ubuntu/Linux. Today, I want to write a supplemental post on how to uninstall installed Adobe AIR applications (and Adobe AIR runtime itself) on Ubuntu/Linux. Let's get started.
There are two methods for uninstalling Adobe AIR applications:
1. From the *.air file
The Adobe AIR application installer comes with uninstall option for installed application. Simply run the *.air file and choose "Uninstall" when a dialog appears on the screen.
2. Via Ubuntu Package Manager
If you've lost your *.air file, you can uninstall the application via Ubuntu Package Manager. For example, I have installed Klok 2 on my computer, so I should run:
It's strongly recommended to use tab completion on Terminal because the package name of the installed application is too long.
- sudo apt-get remove klok[tab]
Uninstalling Adobe AIR runtime
If you wish to remove the Adobe AIR runtime, simply run the following command:
Please note that uninstalling the runtime will remove ALL installed AIR application!
- sudo apt-get remove adobeair
