    Songbird is available as a .deb. afaik.
    You should take a look in helpfile(s) how to completely uninstall the program, not al tar.gz packages come with a neat uninstall howto though....

    You "do" know how to uninstall a .deb file?
    That principle would work with Songbird too.

    a tar/tar gz isn't found in -apt/synaptic. A .deb package is.

    type this in terminal:

    Code:
    sudo apt-get remove songbird
    it worked for me (with karmic and songbird 1.4.3 from getdeb).

    or just look for songbird folder and delete the contents, also remove any icons you may have.
