I installed Steam a while back trying to play some games. Now that I'm taking classes again, I uninstalled it and let my brother uses my account so we don't have to buy the same games twice. The problem is that from time to time, I still see a Steam popup that says Steam Remote Play is n.... I tried clicking on it but it doesn't do anything. How do I uninstall that Steam Remote Play popup?

    It is a Gnome notification or a browser notification? On what version of Ubuntu are you on? You can disable Steam Play by going to Steam>[Steam]>[Settings]>[Steam Play] and untick the abilitation – dadexix86 Sep 22 '19 at 20:09

    What is the icon of the notification, is it the Steam icon? Also, post the output of ps axu | grep steam. – dadexix86 Sep 22 '19 at 20:52

    The second commands says that you still have 15858 steam files on your computer, so probably you forgot to remove some of them. The first command says that there is no "steam" process still running in the background. I need you to paste on a pastebin the full output of locate steam (it's going to be 15858 lines) and post the link to it here – dadexix86 Sep 22 '19 at 21:07

    Good news: almost everything is in your home folder. To remove this residue from the steam configurations, just remove the hidden .steam folder: rm -r ~/.steam (no sudo needed, don't use it, just type the command as it is) – dadexix86 Sep 24 '19 at 8:12
