How to de-install OpenStudio under Linux

OpenStudio is installed in subdirectories of /user/local, so I could manually delete any subdirectories which apparantly pertain to OpenStudio. However, this might be an unsafe hacker's method. What's the appropriate way of de-installing OpenStudio ?

Do you see openstudio in the list when you type dpkg --list in a terminal?

Meanwhile, I have found two answers:

(1) open program synaptic with administrator privilege, search for openstudio, and mark it for deletion, and apply excecution of selected package operation(s)

(2) in command terminal, execute with adminstrator privilege:

dpkg -r openstudio

sudo apt-get remove --purge openstudio probably does it
