There are at least 2 popular ways we can uninstall the software.

  1. Through GUI tools like "Software Center"
  2. Through command line tools such as "apt"

1. Process using "Software Center":

  • Go to start menu -> System and utilities -> Software install remove -> Software Center -> Click to open "Discover" the software center application
  • Search for the software you want to remove (let say 'blender')
  • On the right-hand pane, you will see Blender with a button to "Remove" -> Click to remove -> It will ask you for your user password -> Once entered the uninstallation process should finish in few seconds
  • If you now clear the search term 'blender' you can browse applications available in Debian repository, you can browse and select any application to install. This is similar to the Android play store.

2. Process using "apt" (the command line way):

  • Go to start menu -> System and utilities -> Terminals -> Terminal(Konsole) -> Click to open
  • Here you can simply type "sudo apt remove blender" -> It will ask you for your user password -> Once entered the uninstallation process should finish in a few seconds
  • If you do not remember the exact package name (in most cases we don't), then you can simply search using "dpkg" tool
  • Run "dpkg -l | grep blender" (This will list all the packages with the word 'blender', you can visually check and isolate the exact name of the application you want to remove, then use the "sudo apt remove <software-name> to remove the application

Hope this answers your query. Both of the above methods doesn't disturb other installed applications.

Click the Start button and look for a program you wish to remove, either in the All Apps list on the left or in the tiled section on the right. Right-click the program. If it can be removed this way, you'll see an option for Uninstall in the pop-up menu. Click it, confirm you want to uninstall it, and it's gone. Thank You.
