How to neatly uninstall app on Linux?

Hi there.

I have Ubuntu 18.04 x64 on my machine, with native app 6.4.4 installed. I got inconsistent results when calling my API, having different response when I call URL with app or with CURL equivalent given by postman.

So I think something is wrong with my postman installation. How do I completely remove my current postman and its configuration (but not my collection and stuff from postman account) ?

I tried the noob method in Ubuntu software center > remove, but it is not enough for removing configuration. For now I resume my work in chrome app but it is deprecatedโ€ฆ

Thank you and have a nice day.

Hi Pierre,

You can follow the following steps:

  1. Delete the location where you have unzipped the Postman app.

    rm -rf /path/to/Postman
    
  2. Delete the directory where all user data is stored (Warning!!! Any non-synced data will be lost forever, consider creating a backup first)

    # Delete permanently
    rm -rf ~/.config/Postman
    
    # Or move as a backup (as a safer alternative)
    mv ~/.config/Postman ~/.config/Postman.old
