    Under linux I can't find the database file.  Uninstalling the program does not delete the database.  When I reinstall it is still there.  any idea which files I need to manually remove.

      Uninstalling shouldn't remove the database -- it would be bad if removing a program removed custom personal data. As is standard in many programs, the personal files are stored in a "dot" directory -- ~/.gourmet/

      To remove all previous configuration, do the following:
      rm -rf ~/.gourmet/

      To just remove the database file, do the following:
      rm ~/.gourmet/recipes.db
