How do I completely remove an application completely (incld. its settings) ?
The application called BeatBox Music Player and it can be found from the following URL: http://www.webupd8.org/2012/02/elementary-music-player-beatbox-03.html
Cos every time I've tried to re-install the application, its previous settings still maintained.

I install it with the following command:


sudo add-apt-repository ppa:sgringwe/beatbox
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install beatbox


At first I uninstall the application from USC ... since the previous library is still there,
So I've tried to use the following command:

sudo apt-get --purge remove beatbox
And let ubuntu tweak to clean file Janitor and re-start the lappie ... but the result is the same

You need to look in your home - there will be a hidden folder somewhere

In a terminal


locate beatbox

check the locations in your home

This.

Also, keep in mind that the settings in general are being kept in the home directory of each user (never being removed when you remove a package), usually under ~/.config or under ~/.program_name

Look for

.cache/beatbox
.local/share/beatbox
