How to uninstall tar.gz program?

Hi, basically i installed eclipse IDE as a tar.gz package, turns out it was broken, so i installed it via snap instead and it works great. how do install the tar.gz version?

btw, sudo pacman -R does not work, it cant find the program, nor can i find it on the package manager

thank you

tar.gz is actually not an installer or a package format… then if you did not run any script that would actually install it you certainly just extracted the archive somewhere and you will just need to remove the folder you extracted from the tar.gz archive.


Yeah I got it sorted. Thank you. Was a simple command to remove it from usr/applications. Will stick to using the package manager from now on
