This question already has an answer here:
I'm on Ubuntu 16.04 and I downloaded and installed Etcher for Linux x64 (64-bit) (AppImage), a standalone application to make bootable usb drives. Supposedly, to uninstall the application I simply havee to remove it. However, on first use a message popped up asking "Should a desktop file for /home/myhome/Downloads/etcher-electron-1.4.4-x86_64.AppImage be installed?" I selected yes, and now I can't get the message to come back. I deleted the AppImage file and extracted a new one from the downloaded zip file, but the message will no longer pop up. This seems to indicates that the application has not completely removed. How do I completely remove it?
For those claiming this is a duplicate, the answer to the provided "duplicate" does not apply here because this is a standalone application. Please read more carefully next time.
