This page describes methods to UNINSTALL (remove) GNU Radio from your computer. Since there are several methods of installing GNU Radio, different methods are needed to uninstall it.

From Binaries[edit]

Distribution package manager[edit]

If GNU Radio was installed from your distribution package manager, it can be uninstalled in the same manner. From a terminal screen, enter:

  • sudo apt remove gnuradio

From PPA[edit]

If GNU Radio was installed from a PPA, it can be uninstalled with the following commands. From a terminal screen, enter:

  • sudo apt remove gnuradio
  • sudo add-apt-repository --remove <ppa name>

From Source[edit]

If GNU Radio was built from source code, it can be uninstalled with the following commands. From a terminal screen, enter:

  • cd ~/gnuradio/build
  • sudo make uninstall

From PyBOMBS[edit]

If you used PyBOMBS to install GNU Radio in a custom prefix, you can uninstall with:

  • sudo pip uninstall pybombs

Then move ~/{your-prefix} folder to Trash using Files

Unknown / Not Sure / Cleanup[edit]

If you don't know or don't remember your installation prefix, perform the following step:

  • on a terminal screen, enter gnuradio-config-info --prefix (it might not work)

then use that prefix in place of {your-prefix} in the following command.

  • find {your-prefix} -name gnuradio | grep "packages"

otherwise, try

  • find /usr -name gnuradio | grep "packages"

Then move whatever (sub)folders you find with "gnuradio" to trash using Files

Move ~/.gnuradio folder to trash using Files
