I followed this step mentioned by the app developer in readme note to uninstall it:

  1. To uninstall run /opt/xdman/uninstall.sh as root

I even rebooted to see if it disappears, but it didn't. I tried the solution mentioned in I can't use "remove" to uninstall xtreme download manager but it didn't work either.

Any help appreciated.


  • sudo rm /usr/share/applications/xdman.desktop ? – Liso May 18 '19 at 2:41
  • @Jim I did try that from reading the link I mentioned. It didn't work. It says, "No such file or directory" – Pranav May 18 '19 at 2:43
  • How did you install xdman ? Any tutorial you followed ? – Liso May 18 '19 at 2:44
  • @Jim i installed it by downloading a zip file from Sourceforge and extract it, saw "readme" file, read it and installed it. – Pranav May 18 '19 at 2:46
  • I would find the file, sudo find / -type f -name "xdman.desktop". This will do a recursive search from / directory, which cover all possible folder. – Liso May 18 '19 at 3:03

The matter got solved after I searched in my Home directory by typing xdm.

Delete xdm.desktop and that's it.

  • There maybe some more xdm-related stuff in ~, ~/.config or ~/.local/share as well you could remove. – DK Bose May 18 '19 at 4:05
  • @DKBose I see over 100's of the folder which includes configuration of all old application which I don't use it anymore. Is there a command to remove all old config/unwanted files. – Pranav May 18 '19 at 6:10

    I suggest you do the removal by hand so you'll be sure. Also, send the deleted files/folders to Trash rather than deleting them permanently. That way, if you make a mistake, you can simply restore the file/folder. – DK Bose May 18 '19 at 6:17
  • @DKBose Thanks. – Pranav May 18 '19 at 8:22
