Because the Linux version of the Teams application is supplied as a .deb file, the installation is registered in your package management. Note, however, that as part of the installation process, Microsoft also added a software source (PPA) for Teams. That ensures that you automatically receive updates.

The package is named teams. You can see this in the output of the command dpkg -l *team*. Remove it using

sudo apt remove teams

You can remove the added PPA using "Software & Updates", "Other Software" tab, or using the terminal:

sudo add-apt-repository --remove ppa:repos/ms-teams

    Or easier... use dpkg -l *team* | grep ii.

    In my case, the package was teams, therefore the solution was sudo apt remove teams. May 3, 2020 at 14:52

In an older version of Ubuntu Like mine, I use the following line.

sudo rm -r {the directory of where you installed the "team"}

It depends on How you install it. If you install from Microsoft Website, .deb then it is easily uninstalled with the above line. If you installed using Wine but using the .exe. file then you need to do something About the Wine

wine uninstall

** I used an old version, It might work for you and probably not. Hope this help

    rm will delete the files and directories of teams but would not "uninstall" that. It'll still appear as a "ghost" in apt list --installed and dpkg -l.

  • I see. But that works on mine. I genuinely don't know why and how. Mar 23, 2020 at 14:51
  • Just install Stacer and it lets you remove anything. Sep 2, 2021 at 12:05
  • Another approach to manually delete MS Teams is documented here

view on the site https://doc.ubuntu-fr.org/teams => the snap solution work for me, apt and dpkg don't work

snap remove --purge teams
