I'm relatively new in Linux (using Ubuntu).
I've installed several versions of RB during the last months, but I don't know how to uninstall the old versions.
They do not appear at the list of installed applications.
I've found them in the "opt" folder, but I don't think deleting the folders directly is a good procedure.
I suppose the solution is very simple, so please give me some help.

You can use the Synaptic Package Manager to find and uninstall realbasic. You can find this app under System->Administration->Synaptic Package Manager. In the Quick Search field, type in "realbasic" and it should be listed. Simply deleting the folder in /opt doesn't remove all the files that get installed.

Thanks William,

Effectively, there were still some files that were not deleted.
Now, after doing who you said, everything is clear.
