I usually don't ask for help unless I really can't find the answer myself. So, I'll explain where I got into. I installed the Google Earth using this:

wget http://dl.google.com/earth/client/current/GoogleEarthLinux.bin && chmod +x GoogleEarthLinux.bin && ./GoogleEarthLinux.bin

I tried: 1) udo apt-get purge google-earth-stable

I can't find the exact package (dpkg --list 'google-earth*' | cat) because it writes that I don't have any Google Earth installed. sudo apt-get autoremove

All I get is:

zack@Zack-OS:~$ exec "$UNINSTALL" -L google-earth "/home/zack/google-earth/.manifest/google-earth.xml" "$1"
bash: exec: : not found
zack@Zack-OS:~$ sudo apt-get  --purge autoremove google earth
[sudo] password for zack: 
Reading package lists... Done
Building dependency tree       
Reading state information... Done
E: Unable to locate package google
E: Unable to locate package earth

The problem is that I have the folder home/google-earh Please, help me, guys)

I have Linux Ubuntu 14.04LTS, 64-bit

Answer is found thanks to @Rinzwind

cd ~/google-earth chmod 750 uninstall ./uninstall

Plus to remove the download

cd ~/ rm GoogleEarthLinux.bin

  • It should be quite clear for you that if you don't install things through dpkg/APT it won't keep track of it. Commented Jan 10, 2016 at 19:03

  1. if you did not use "apt-get" to install forget about "apt-get" for removing software.

  2. "home/google-earh"

    Please be precise. that part you typed there contains typos. I would assume it is installed in /home/zack/google-earth. If so you should check inside the google-earth directory. There is an "uninstall" in there.

    That would be

    cd ~/google-earth
    chmod 750 uninstall
    ./uninstall
    

    Plus to remove the download

    cd ~/
    rm GoogleEarthLinux.bin

  • Okay. Thank you! It seems there's no home/zack/google-earth anymore, though I still have GoogleEarthLinux.bin and desktop icon. Should I just delete it?
