To give a good picture of my problem I am going to illustrate that using the sequence of installations I have done :
I downloaded ipfs from the link available on their official website . This is ipfs-go which I was supposed to download for my Ubuntu OS.
To install the tar.gz file I followed the method under the section Installing from a Prebuilt Package for MacOS and Linux
I later tried to uninstall it by following up the SO threads, but to no avail.
What is the correct way to completely remove an application?
Later I came across IPFS desktop version with an intent to uninstall IPFS through GUI method but it shows some error while installing although the icon can be seen on my applications menu.
Now I have to uninstall the IPFS GUI and the ipfs present on my system and I cannot figure out a way.
Please see the screenshots below to understand the problem with IPFS GUI (It cannot be uninstalled when I go to ubuntu software center): IPFS GUI application does not appear in the software center
Please answer my problem in a two-part form which uninstalls ipfs and ipfs gui completely from my system. I have searched for the solution online but I suppose there is no clear answer. Your help is very much appreciated. :)
