How to Uninstall Adobe Air Application in Ubuntu

By admin | October 14, 2008

It is not so difficult to uninstall Adobe Air if you have the relative experience. But I still remember the first time when I tried to remove it. It really took me long time then I found it could be deleted in control panel directly. Now how about the Ubuntu? If you still remain the file *.air, then congratulation. What you do is just double click the file and choose the option Uninstall. But if you have deleted it after installed, what can you do? Please follow these steps given by wanfahmi.

You need to drop to a terminal. Most probably, you have installed the application to /opt folder. Type these commands.

sudo dpkg -S /opt/*

You’ll get an output like this

adobeair1.0: /opt/Adobe AIR
com.adobe.hoyt.mapcache.419d633a757e8b26dd2bdb301927ba7ba7490f38.1: /opt/AIR Examples
jp.clockmaker.airicongenerator.785adfa7d3f9cf50a24cbff5b86ab182b877b02c.1: /opt/ClockMaker
cxchromium: /opt/cxchromium
dpkg: /opt/lampp not found.

For example, to remove the Air Icon Generator application, enter this.(Copy and paste would be good now.)

sudo dpkg -P jp.clockmaker.airicongenerator.785adfa7d3f9cf50a24cbff5b86ab182b877b02c.1

and get an output some thing like this

    Umm, or just use a nice GUI of your choice i.e. the same one you manage any other package with.

    I wrote Uninstaller for Adobe AIR to automate that process.

    Got this solution some other place – much simpler in Ubuntu 10

    You can remove the application by going to Ubuntu Software center, search for application and remove it.
