Hello @ll,

I want to know how I can delete/uninstall Electrum on Linux Mint.

I always start it with the "python electrum" command because the full Installation didn't work for me.

Is it enough to delete all Electrum folders found on Linux?

Do you know the path where the files are?

Thank you!

Biddi

Have you tried this?:

Code:
sudo pip uninstall electrum

This should delete everything except the folder where all your wallet details are so you can go to ~/.electrum and remove the rest from there manually.

It is enough just to delet everything that it installed.
Does the ~/.electrum folder have anything in it? If it doesn't, it's likely that if it didn't install successfully then it remove all the files from it when it aborted the installation.

Yep, sounds like you aren't using an installed copy and you are just running it from the directory it was downloaded to.

You should be able to just remove the directory that it is stored in and it will remove it. Your wallets and configurations are stored in ~/.electrum/ so you would also have to remove that directory should you wish to remove everything. It is usually safer to leave wallet files in case you ever need them in the future though.

Yes the seed is enough to reproduce the wallet. You might want to note the PUBLIC KEY as well as you can import that anywhere and it cannot be used to produce private keys, just addresses (unless someone else already has a private key of an address which is unlikely).
