I've installed a program through the terminal, the program is Cuttlefish. Now I want to uninstall it and I can't find it in the software Center.

How can I do it?

    How did you install the program? – jobin Mar 21 '14 at 19:25

You can uninstall the program through the terminal, very much like how you installed it.

Run sudo apt-get remove --purge <package-name>

So for cuttlefish you would run sudo apt-get remove --purge cuttlefish


install synaptic package manager. Go to terminal by clrt+alt+T and type

sudo apt-get install synaptic

Form this you can install and remove packages in ubuntu without software center. Have a nice time.

sudo apt-get purge cuttlefish

Instead of uninstall, it removes anything related (most of the time).
