I installed JDownloader via jd_unix_0_9.sh. Now I want to uninstall it. Can anyone tell me how?

I think there should be some option like jd_unix_0_9 -remove to accomplish this.

In case you didn't add JD PPA, and want to manually remove it, delete this folder:

~/.jdownloader

Additionally remove also these files:

/usr/bin/jdownloader
/usr/share/applications/jdownloader.desktop
/usr/share/doc/jdownloader/changelog.Debian.gz
/usr/share/doc/jdownloader/copyright
/usr/share/icons/hicolor/16x16/apps/jdownloader.png
/usr/share/icons/hicolor/22x22/apps/jdownloader.png
/usr/share/icons/hicolor/24x24/apps/jdownloader.png
/usr/share/icons/hicolor/32x32/apps/jdownloader.png
/usr/share/icons/hicolor/48x48/apps/jdownloader.png

THX, it actually only located in my home folder. So, I just removed ~/jdownloader and ~/.jdownloader. –  Peng Wu Nov 17 '11 at 9:26
    
Then others come from PPA install, I guess. Don't know why you have ~/jdownloader folder, but that's not important now that you removed unwanted program –  zetah Nov 17 '11 at 9:36

Dirty but efficient. And yes I know the post is 2 years old. Well... I got here over Google so others will too.

sudo find / -iregex ".*jdownloader.*" -exec rm -R '{}' \;

Please be careful, you can do a lot of damage with this command!!!
