Uninstall on MINT 16

OK... in another thread... I mentioned "how do I uninstall a program"...
I have installed "Flowblade" video editor, but can`t use it, ( won`t accept drag and drop/or any other method) of input video for editing.
so... I want to uninstall it..... On the Menu there is no specific "uninstall" method... and can`t find the program anywhere, to see if it has an uninstall method.
Typing "Uninstall" on the Menu does not show it at all......

Find the app, right click on the menu choose Uninstall. Or run Synaptic (Package manager on the menu) find it by typing the name in the search box and choose uninstall.
There is no equivalent to the M$ installed programs app.

Thanks HB.... will make a note of the process, as it is "involved" compared to Windows "uninstall.exe"  Roll_eyes

Removal just removes the app, complete removes the config files associated with it.

Re: Uninstall on MINT 16

If the package makes use of other packages and no other package requires these packages (quite a mouthful),
It will prompt you to remove these unused dependencies.
This avoids software bloat.
