I recently installed Opera Next via tar.

I saw it, "played" with it, and now I want to uninstall it.

Where can I find it's directory? The package is neither in Ubuntu Software Center, nor in Synaptic Package Manager.

Try this:


or if you installed it globally:

sudo /usr/local/bin/uninstall-opera-next

After that you'd need to manually remove the user date in ~/.opera-next.
