To completely uninstall node js from Ubuntu


To manually remove node js, npm and  node_modules from Ubuntu,  you need to do the following steps.

1. First of all you need to run the following command from command terminal as sudo.

sudo rm -rf /usr/local/bin/npm /usr/local/share/man/man1/node* /usr/local/lib/dtrace/node.d ~/.npm ~/.node-gyp /opt/local/bin/node opt/local/include/node /opt/local/lib/node_modules      


2. Remove node or node_modules directories from /usr/local/lib with the help of following command.

sudo rm -rf /usr/local/lib/node*                                                                                 

3. Remove node or node_modules directories from /usr/local/include with the help of following command.

sudo rm -rf /usr/local/include/node*                                                                         

5. Remove any node file or dir from /usr/local/bin with the help of following command.

sudo rm -rf /usr/local/bin/node*                                                                                
  
4.  Go to home directory and remove any node or node_modules directory, if exists. 


Now it is done................

  1. Great guide, however I would strongly suggest against putting rm -rf in your commands since if someone were to mis-paste or mis-type these commands, they risk deleting MUCH more than just their node folders, especially in combination with a wildcard.
