Uninstall Google Desktop in Ubuntu

Well, I’m bored of Google Desktop already since I upgraded to Hardy. The new Tracker in hardy is better integrated into the system. I got the instruction from Google Desktop Help Center.

To uninstall Google Desktop:

  1. Open Terminal: Applications -> Accessories -> Terminal
  2. Enter:
  3. sudo dpkg -r google-desktop-linux

  4. Type in your password and hit Enter. You have uninstalled Google Desktop.

I am still trying to install Google Gadget. Check it out if you are interested. Pretty messy though.
