Uninstall Fantasy Grounds Unity in Ubuntu Linux

Since all information in the Ubuntu Linux installation is stored in a hidden directory in your /home/[username]/ directory called .smiteworks, you can simply delete that directory by dragging it to the trash and then emptying the trash.

Note: If you do not see the .smiteworks directory, you may need to place a checkmark next to "Show Hidden Files" in the menu shown in the image below:

If you are running running a version of Ubuntu with a different desktop environment, or simply wish to use the terminal, you can use the following instructions:

Launch a Terminal session and enter the following command:
cd ~/.smiteworks ; rm -r fantasygrounds fgdata ; cd .. ; rmdir .smiteworks

If you need to break the command down into its individual parts, enter each line, then hit Enter:
cd ~/.smiteworks
rm -r fantasygrounds fgdata
cd ..
rmdir .smiteworks
