--> IMPORTANT: Be very careful when typing the commands below. If you press Enter before you're done typing you can severely mess up your system. So use copy/paste instead! I am not liable to any damages, etc, etc.


If you installed from the PPA, type the following on a terminal:

$ sudo rm -rf /usr/lib/cardapio
$ sudo rm -rf /usr/bin/cardapio
$ sudo rm /usr/lib/bonobo/servers/cardapio.server
$ sudo find /usr/share/locale -name '*' -delete


If you installed from another source, you may need to change the prefix directory. For example, a common prefix is /usr/local:

$ sudo rm -rf /usr/local/lib/cardapio
$ sudo rm -rf /usr/local/bin/cardapio
$ sudo rm /usr/local/lib/bonobo/servers/cardapio.server
$ sudo find /usr/local/share/locale -name '*' -delete


Now you may also want to remove your personal Cardapio folders, which stores your preferences and other important things:

$ rm -rf ~/.config/Cardapio ~/.cache/Cardapio
