There is no way of deleting JOSM and this is ridiculous. I searched my whole computer and deleted icedtea-netx and itdid nothing!!!!.

You can delete it through /home/superuser/.local/share/applications/javaws/JOSM (JOSM - Java OpenStreetMap Editor) from josm.jnlp.desktop

There should still be a easier way to delete it however

Like the name "WebStart" indicates, it is started from Web. As there is no "install", you also can't "uninstall" something.

Simply remove the icon.

If you delete the home directory of josm you also delete all configurations and downloaded files.
