Folder keeps appearing

Hello! I’m using Manjaro Gnome, however, even if I already uninstalled Kindle from my PC it keeps appearing the folder, how can I fix it?

  • I’m trying to add a pic but for some reason, I cannot-

Welcome to the forum! :slight_smile:

Uninstalling an application does not remove the application’s configuration files in your home directory, so you’ll have to manually delete that directory. It should be safe to do so.


Hello @SamuelDarkS :slight_smile:

I guess you installed Kindle through wine … if so, then check this folder:


There are all desktop files located which are installed as user, not as root.

However, like @Aragorn says… configuration files at your home folder are not removed by any uninstall.


Hey guys! Thanks for answering so fast. Then, I uninstalled everything, but it keeps appearing. -I don’t know if I got all the instructions right, I’m really noob yet-

What folder?

It appears two folders, the ‘‘Kindle’’ one and ‘‘Uninstall Kindle’’.

You mean the desktop files or shortcuts at the menu?

Shortcuts at the menu

Could you open a terminal and type this:

ls -R ~/.local/share/applications/

Please post the output here.

It appears like that:
ls -R $HOME/.local/share/applications/  :heavy_check_mark:

'Amazon Kindle'  'Amazon Kindle For PC'

'/home/samdavi/.local/share/applications/wine/Programs/Amazon/Amazon Kindle':

'/home/samdavi/.local/share/applications/wine/Programs/Amazon/Amazon Kindle For PC':

And here are the “shortcuts”:

Delete them:

rm -Rf ~/.local/share/applications/wine/Programs/Amazon

and run

update-desktop-database ~/.local/share/applications/

Btw. dot files/folders like .local are hidden files/folders. You need to make them visible at your file manager.
