# Problem deleting apk

I have an Android application installed but not appearing in application list. So, I tried to use apkd-uninstall. I got this message:

$apkd-uninstall appname.apk method return sender=:1.2 -> dest=:1.3474 reply_serial=2 boolean false  And nothing happens. Does anyone have an idea what is going on? edit retag close delete ## 2 Answers Sort by » oldest newest most voted answered 2015-09-08 23:16:26 +0300 I experienced the same issue A work-around is to change directory to /opt/alien/data/app/, list the directory content, and uninstall with apkd-uninstall. E.g.: [nemo@Jolla ~]$ cd /opt/alien/data/app/
[nemo@Jolla app]$ls com.vendor.appname-1.apk [nemo@Jolla app]$ apkd-uninstall com.vendor.appname-1.apk
method return sender=:1.5 -> dest=:1.77 reply_serial=2
boolean true
[nemo@Jolla app]\$

Some of the apks I had issus with uninstalling were suffixed with a hyphen and a number. That might be the culprit…

Install "Applications Info" app from fdroid.org and use that to remove the package!
