uninstall oxygen from linux

Post by Oleksii » Sat Mar 16, 2019 10:15 pm

There is a strange behaviour in Ubuntu 16.04: oxygen (19.01) is not listed in the Ubuntu software but you can find it and run from the "dash". Also, the installation files are available ( /opt). I wanted to remove it by "... remove oxygen" command but it didn't find the package. So I supposed it has another name but in the list of packages from the terminal I didn't find anything containing "oxygen" keyword.

Oxygen does not come as a Debian package (it's a .sh installer), so that's why you can't find it listed in Ubuntu Software and cannot remove it with the remove command.

As mentioned on the download page, if you want to remove the software, you should run the uninstall script from the Oxygen installation folder.
