Can't remove Opera and Chrome
I’m that kind of user who likes to have different browsers, media players, etc. Today I just wanted to try out Opera and Google Chrome, but I don’t want to use them anymore so I thought that I remove them. The problem is I can’t find them in Ubuntu Software Center or when I use ‘remove opera’ in terminal it doesn’t work.
Can you tell me how to remove them properly?
In Software Center go to Installed and from right side of the Installed click on the down arrow button and select Unknown – You will see Opera and Chrome there.
Open a Terminal and put in:
sudo apt-get remove opera-stable
to remove opera and
sudo apt-get remove google-chrome-stable
to remove chrome
Are you sure that you have installed these two pieces of software successfully?
dpkg -s opera-stable google-chrome-stable
If you see
dpkg-query: package 'nlll' is not installed and no information is available that means you didn’t install that.
Also, if you install that, you will see lots of files.
Use purge to delete the configurations as well
sudo apt-get purge opera-stable
After a long searching process, I used
sudo snap remove opera-beta command and it is working. I forget that i installed
opera-beta from snap.
I solved with this command :
sudo snap remove opera
