To be specific I'm using Ubuntu 12.04 LTS. I already look up this by googling and found several answers to my question, but my problem is that I'm confuse which one to follow because results are not consistent, they differ from each other and so yeah I'm not so sure which one to follow. I know someone could help me here regarding this matter. Mostly they suggested using the terminal is the best way to uninstall a software in Linux. But I haven't tried it yet because I'm afraid that my system will mess up. So I hope you can help me with this. Thanks.
How to uninstall software in Linux?(10 posts)
Search for that software in "Ubuntu Software Center" and select "Remove", it's really easy.
If it does not show there, open a "Terminal" and run:
sudo apt-get remove nameOfThePackage
You will need to enter your password because of the "sudo" command, which runs the command following it as the "root" user (the Linux equivalent of "Administrator"). The typical stars (as in "Password: *******") won't appear as you type.
If you don't know the name for the package, try using TAB to auto-complete it.

Thanks... Actually I'm uninstalling 'Scratch' and I already uninstalled in on the Ubuntu Software Center... but it's still there in my application and I can still run it. So that's why I want to uninstall it using the terminal. I will not try the links to get rid of this problem. Thanks.
