Need some help updating the OS and Uninstalling an app

ahh - I thought I was supposed to see anything in the actual screenshot pictures atop
yes, I can see LBRY and a strange Icon
that does not help me, though :wink:

ye so how can I help you figuring out what I can do to remove that app :frowning:

How did you install it?
How did you uninstall it?

from the package manager GUI
the add/remove software app

what IS that app?
You must have installed it.
You must know what it is and what it is for.

video streaming like Youtube
I thought it’s an app based on youtube so it shows youtube videos in a cool, sorted way but turned out to be a different platform with it’s own videos

Which package did you use exactly?

literally just pressed install :joy:

He does not know - or is not capable to tell.

AUR (en) - Packages

does not have anything like it by that particular name

mese give up

Is that a Flatpak package? We can’t help you if you aren’t precise…

I mean,
can’t you open the package manager and search for it to know it’s package name or something then tell me what to do?

yeah - what happens when you do that? :wink:

I can - but I don’t have the thing installed nor do have a problem with it.

from this photo I guess it is yes, but I had a flatpack list before n the app wasn’t listed but let’s pretend we dont know that and act as if it’s flatpack

dude you’re saying I am not able to tell, I wish I can :joy:
I am even providing every single screenshot I possibly can attach but I am not that experienced yet ;/

I mean I am not trying to tell you what to do or anything I am just suggesting things in case I wasn’t able to provide precise enough information :sweat_smile:

Then let’s check if Flatpak knows about it.

flatpak list

Although it is about Windows, and probably not through Flatpak, i spotted an issue about the application not uninstalling properly.

flatpak install flathub lbry
flatpak uninstall lbry

If the application is still in the system, we should be able to find it.

find / -regex .*lbry.*

An exception could be when one wants to reply separately to different users; however one can tag the person or quote posts instead.

If I’m typing lbry into pamac-manager (the GUI)
I get multiple choices - not just one

No one knows what or which one you installed - and want to remove.
less /var/log/pacman.log
The barebones approach would be to examine the pacman installation log.

cat /var/log/pacman.log | grep lbry

or something simlar, like

less /var/log/pacman.log
and then, within the program, CTRL+f to look for a pattern
like lbry

to see what was done and when
