I downloaded QtCreator 2.6.1 from the official website because i'm using ubuntu 12.04. Now i need to uninstall it. How can i do it?

In the location where application is installed (default location: /opt/Qt5.0.0/) is a file named QtCreatorUninstaller. Run this executable in the terminal to uninstall QtCreator.

One way is to open Ubuntu Software Center and click on Installed tab and if you can see the QtCreator in the list then there you will find a button Remove, the second way is from terminal
sudo apt-get remove {package-name}

Ubuntu Software Center doesn't see QtCreator 2.6.1 neither apt-get remove does the job. – CodeArtist Jan 4 '13 at 11:13
+1 It worked for me although i used sudo apt-get remove qtcreator* to remove all related to qtcreator – dariush Apr 12 '15 at 11:59

Run the QtCreator Maintenance program. If you accepted the default paths in the 2.6.1 installer, it's at /opt/Qt5.0.0/MaintenanceTool . The default option is Remove All Components.

There is no such program in the path where app is installed. – CodeArtist Jan 4 '13 at 11:14
Did you install the full SDK or the standalone QtCreator? I think only the SDK gives you the MaintenanceTool. (And did you uncheck any options during the install?) For the standalone, I think you can just remove the directories it setup. – chaskes Jan 4 '13 at 13:17
