    Default Unable To Unistall

    I downloaded and installed Zimbra Desktop 7.2.2 into Linux Mint 16 Cinnamin. Unfortunately, I see now that I inadvertently installed it as root. Now the program is locked and I cannot run it. I have tried every way I have been able to discover to uninstall it as root but each time the uninstall starts it fails with the message that it can't find zimbra even though I can see it there under opt/zimbra.

    Can anyone help?

    Why don't you (as root) just remove all the files that were installed and any desktop icon that it's installed?

    That's the crux of my problem. I am trying to do just that using all the ways that I have been able to discover at various forums. I have repeatedly tried (sudo apt-get --purge remove zimbra desktop) and each time it begins to process and then fails with the error message that it (can't find directory zimbra) even though I can navigate and find it under (opt).

    The only other clue I can offer is that the desktop icon and the directory are both grayed out and have the image of a lock on them.

    Their is another directory under Home/user/ called (zdesktop) and that is also grayed out with a lock on it.

    Thanks for helping.
