Hi, I need to uninstall node js as it was installed incorrectly. Does anyone have a simple way of doing this in Ubuntu based Linux (Linux lite). I tried manually deleting the node modules but I have to go through each module individually to do this as they are write protected. Now I have a partially uninstalled version of node js ️
you can try this
If you installed Node via apt,
sudo apt remove nodejs should do. If you also want to remove configuration files:
sudo apt purge nodejs. And if you want to also remove unused packages installed by Node:
sudo apt autoremove.
If this doesn’t work, I’m afraid it’s going to take a deep Google search. You can also try, if the previous solution doesn’t work for you, to find its installation path (
whereis node) and, from there, remove the whole directory with
rm - rf.
Thanks, I’ll give these options a go tonight
