I recently installed the Mention beta for Ubuntu, a tool to track mentions in social media. The install is a bin file that you have to install from the command line. There's no uninstaller and apt-get remove mention does not find the package. How do I remove it?

This is a simple install in the /opt/mention directory. All you have to do is empty the directory and remove it:

rm -rf /opt/mention

To copy this code highlight it and press Ctrl+c.

You can paste this code in a terminal window by using Ctrl+Shift+V.
