flatpak-uninstall — Uninstall an application or runtime

Synopsis

flatpak uninstall [OPTION...] [REF...]

Description

Uninstalls an application or runtime. REF is a reference to the application or runtime to install. If no REF is given, everything is updated.

Each REF arguments is a full or partial indentifier in the flatpak ref format, which looks like "(app|runtime)/ID/ARCH/BRANCH". All elements except ID are optional and can be left out, including the slashes, so most of the time you need only specify ID. Any part left out will be matched against what is installed, and if there are multiple matches an error message will list the alternatives.

By default this looks for both installed apps and runtime with the given NAME, but you can limit this by using the --app or --runtime option.

Normally, this command removes the ref for this application/runtime from the local OSTree repository and purges and objects that are no longer needed to free up disk space. If the same application is later reinstalled, the objects will be pulled from the remote repository again. The --keep-ref option can be used to prevent this.

If all branches of the application/runtime are removed, this command also purges the data directory for the application.

Unless overridden with the --user option, this command updates a system-wide installation.

-h, --help
