    I'm trying to uninstall it because it consumes a lot of memory, but I can't. If someone can give me a hand, I appreciate it.
    I am trying by console, with the command: sudo apt-get –purge remove franz

    I thought it was free but I downloaded a version for Ubuntu 19 and it tells me that I have 14 days of trial .. Do you know if there is a non-PRO version available for Ubuntu Linux?
