Hey greywizard,

Since mint is based on ubuntu, it also has it roost firmly in debian, and therefore, apt! If you want to uninstall an application, you should run

Code: Select all
apt-get remove *name of application*


or you could run

Code: Select all
aptitude remove *name of app*


both should work, as far as I know.. but I could be wrong, of course.

:D

And if you want to remove all the config files too you can do this:

sudo apt-get purge


OR


sudo aptitude purge
