I want to uninstall Android Studio completely from Ubuntu but i can't figure out how to do it.

I installed it following the instructions on the Android website.

  • Is it possible to install it in the first place? I just downloaded the Android Studio archive and simply unzipped it. If I'd want to "uninstall" it I'd just delete the directory where I unzipped it. – user205301 May 3 '15 at 17:08
  • Did you install it from some PPA? – user205301 May 3 '15 at 17:11

    Please edit your question with the informations how you installed it. – Pabi May 3 '15 at 17:19

If you installed it from Android website, then do rm -r the directory into which you extracted the android-studio-ide-141.1890965-linux.zip file.

Also remove .AndroidStudioPreview (or .AndroidStudio1.3 etc., depending on version) which generally resides in your home directory (/home/your-username/).

If you see the android-studio folder in your /home/user-name/android-studio, remove that too.
