I installed Studio 3T on Ubuntu 18.04 using the shell script provided by the vendor. Now, I want to uninstall it and have no idea how to. It does not show up as installed applications in Ubuntu's own package manager. What do I do?

    Have you check with vendor if install script can act as uninstall script? Or if vendor provide uninstall script/procedure? – Romeo Ninov May 24 '18 at 20:25

  • Have you check if its installed in /opt? – Romeo Ninov May 25 '18 at 6:05

To uninstall Studio 3T open terminal in its installation directory (/opt/studio3t) and type these commands:

sudo chmod +x uninstall
sudo ./uninstall

Uninstaller will appear in separate GUI window.

I think the more recent versions of Studio 3T will not require to uninstall previous versions manually.


The solution is simple. Run the uninstall script from the folder in which the application is installed.

Typically, Studio 3T installs in the /home/studio3t folder by default. If not present at this path,
If there is a shortcut to launch "Studio 3T" on your desktop, just right-click on it and select "Properties". You should see the installation path mentioned in the dialog box.


Simply go to the installation directory, named like studio3t, and you can find the uninstall script file studio3t/uninstall.

Open a terminal in that folder and run ./uninstall and press Enter.

It will open the uninstall window. Then press Enter to continue and it will uninstall and redirect to MongoDB website from where you installed the software.

It worked for me.
