    How did you install it.
    And how are you trying to remove it?

    What commands are you running?

    Code:
    sudo dpkg -r <packagename>
    should be all you need to do.

    I don't know what -R is.
    You can also try with --purge.

    The message is only a warning - the package should be removed if you installed it using a deb file
    Don't waste your energy trying to change opinions ... Do your thing, and don't care if they like it.
