Uninstall vivado 2019.1 from ubuntu 18.04

Jump to solution
I'm trying to remove vivado 2019.1 from my ubuntu 18.04. I tried the command "sudo ./xsetup -Uninstall" to remove it, but I get the message "sudo: ./xsetup: command not found". I also tried to use sudo apt remove “package-name”, but dpkg --list | grep vivado gets no return.

Hello @ariel_serafim ,

When you run a command using sudo, you are effectively running it as the superuser or root.

The reason that the root user is not finding your command is likely that the PATH environment variable for root does not include the directory where xsetup is located. Hence the command is not found.

Please use the command provided by @graces and this should allow you to begin the uninstall process.

Hope this helps.

Hi @ariel_serafim 

 

Would you change installed directory before running it ?

Hi @ariel_serafim 

 

>change to which directory?

 

Your installed directory.

 

ex)

Here is my installed directory.

 

/opt/Vivado/2019.2

 

So, I must change current directory to /opt/Vivado/2019.2

 

Best regards

I too have the problem of needing to uninstall Vivado.  I used the command you gave and it appeared to go through the motions but nothing was done. Files were not removed and the GNOME Menu group items were still installed.

Doing a little checking, the correct option should be "-b uninstall" instead of "--uninstall".
