Linux is an open source operating system based on the UNIX platform. Ubuntu is a variant (called "flavors" in the Linux world) of Linux built around a clean and sleek desktop interface, similar to the ones used on Microsoft and Mac computers. The Ubuntu desktop will be familiar to most computer users and makes such tasks as installing or uninstalling programs, such as Limewire, as snap.
Log into your Ubuntu system with root privileges.
Open up the "Applications" menu from the top of the screen. Go to "Add/Remove" from the next menu that opens.
Enter "Limewire" in the "Search" box that opens. Hit the "Search" button. If that returns no hits, you can also try looking under the "Audio/Video" options in the "Categories" menu on the left-hand side of the screen.
Click the checkbox next to the "Limewire" program. Finish by clicking "Apply."
Allow your Ubuntu system to complete the Limewire uninstall program.
Reboot Ubuntu to clear out your system.
- Keep your Ubuntu system up to date with the "Automatic Updates" feature. This will also keep your "Add/Remove Programs" updated with the latest version.
