I'm not an Ubuntu person, although I think there are people on the list who are.

Did you follow this page?

https://help.ubuntu.com/10.04/serverguide/C/tomcat.html


If so, did you set up a private instance to run when you log on?

https://help.ubuntu.com/community/AddingProgramToSessionStartup


Did you stop and disable the service before uninstalling?

Again, I'm not an Ubuntu person so I'm probably not the person to ask.
