How do I uninstall root

I installed root by accident when trying to fix a problem on my lubuntu system. I have no need for this program and it’s way over my head.
I installed it in terminal when somehow I got the code while trying to fix something else.

Could someone please give me the terminal code to uninstall it? thank you. update. I figured it out. I made it harder than it should have been. sorry to trouble you people. New to linux. I just looked for installed programs and removed it. This is why I used dumdum as a user name. LOL You can delete this thread if you like.

It depends on the way you installed it… Maybe something like sudo apt-get remove root?

sudo apt-get purge root-system* root-plugin* libroot*

(Note: afterwards check that the “/usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/root5.34” and the “/usr/lib/i386-linux-gnu/root5.34” subdirectories disappeared completely.)
