    Question how to uninstall unetbootin

    Hi. I reecently downloaded unetbootin from sourceforge and now need to uninstall it. (When the computer boots on start up i still see the option to run it along with my dual boot OS's.) Any idea how to get rid of it?

    Thanks.

    if you're referencing it being listed in the grub bootloader menu

    then you'll want to edit the /boot/grub/menu.lst file to remove it

    Can you post the lists in details (it shows before booting)?

    Just, gksudo gedit /boot/grub/lst and then scroll down and find the entry for unetbootin and delete it.
