I installed the “Experimental for Arch” Docker Desktop. It was a .pkg.tar.zst file which I had never seen before, but I could install it by double-clicking it. But Docker Desktop does not launch, so I want to delete it I could not find it in Add/Remove software. Double clicking the .pkg.tar.zst again did nothing (expected uninstall GUI). I tried “pacman -Rns file://the path to that file”, but it just said “target not found”.
How can I delete Docker Desktop?
the last few lines should contain what the name of the package was that you installed
with the name you can then remove it using
pacman -Rns ...
… or you could simply look at the packages name …
Looking at the site where you probably got it from
the command to install it is given (as an example - it is missing the “version” part in the file name)
sudo pacman -U ./docker-desktop-<version>-<arch>.pkg.tar.zst
They also provide uninstall instructions:
sudo pacman -R docker-desktop
