    This is great, and useful to learn the Terminal code. But how do you get rid of the files leftover, s.a. preference files? Sometimes you want to re-install because of problems with these files but tracking them down can be difficult.

    Best, MO

    This is a great help, and is a really good tutorial and helpful tools. The only problem I am having is that I can not find what I need to remove on Package Manager. It does not come with an ‘Uninstall’ button to remove it (I have quite a few programs that I have installed (windows)I would like to remove but am having problems with. Looks like they are stuck there forever?
    Any help would be appreciated.
    Thank you

    firefox comes preinstalled in mint.
    “sudo apt-get remove firefox” will leave the folders /usr/lib/firefox and /usr/lib/firefox-addons including subfolders. according to Synaptic Package Manager firefox-locale-en, mint-stylish-addon, totem-mozilla remains installed.

    how to completely deinstall firefox?
