    How do I uninstall a curl package?

    I installed a curl process on my raspberry pi, but now I want to remove it via the command line.
    I tried apt-get remove piJS but the os reports it was not able to locate the package.

    Any advice?

    The install command was...
    curl http://pijs.io/install-pijs.sh |bash
    I'm using ubuntu 14.04

    Judging from reading that install script you likely need to stop that process if it is running, remove that init script, then remove the symlinks to that script, and it must be done in that order:
    Code:
    sudo /etc/init.d/pijs stop
    sudo rm /etc/init.d/pijs
    sudo update-rc.d pijs remove
    i5 650 3.2 GHz, 8 GB, nvidia GTX 750 Ti, 32" 1080p | i7-4700MQ, 8 GB, Intel HD 4600/nvidia GTX 765M, 15.6" 1080p | etc.

    This is the script:

    Code:
    #!/bin/sh
    
    VERSION=0.1.1
    PRECOMPILED=http://pijs.s3.amazonaws.com/pijs-precompiled-$VERSION.tar.gz
    
    PING_INSTALL_1='http://io.tbideas.com/pijs/installing?precompiled=true'
    PING_INSTALL_2='http://io.tbideas.com/pijs/install-done'
    
    echo "# Installing piJS on this Raspberry Pi... (using precompiled binaries)"
    
    echo "## Pinging stat server to record a new installation... (no personal info sent)"
    curl $PING_INSTALL_1
    
    echo "## Downloading package with nodejs, pi-blaster and dependencies ..."
    curl $PRECOMPILED -o /tmp/pijs-precompiled.tar.gz
    
    echo "## Installing nodejs and dependencies"
    cd / && sudo tar zxvf /tmp/pijs-precompiled.tar.gz
    
    echo "Configuring auto-start"
    sudo cp /usr/local/lib/node_modules/pi-steroid/pijs-boot.sh /etc/init.d/pijs
    sudo chmod +x /etc/init.d/pijs
    sudo update-rc.d pijs defaults
    sudo /etc/init.d/pijs start
    
    echo "# Installation finished! Pinging stat server"
    curl $PING_INSTALL_2
    So it did not install a package. But it did install a service pijs.

    Try stopping it first:

    Code:
    sudo /etc/init.d/pijs stop
    I have a raspberrypi, what does this service do?

    You can look at the script /etc/init.d/pijs and see what binaries are called. Then delete those one-by-one.

    Thanks, the 3 steps seemed to work.

    I gave it a try but didn't really have a use for it. Then I noticed it was a redundant service so I wanted to remove it. I develop on my pi with gedit over ssh.
    I'm using ubuntu 14.04
