I installed Unified Remote using
dpkg -i urserver.deb
How do I uninstall it so I can reinstall from scratch?

First of all you should check if this package is correctly installed in your system and being listed by
dpkg -l '*urserver*'
It should have an option
ii in the first column of the output - that means 'installed ok installed'.
If you'd like to remove the package itself (without the configuration files), you'll have to run:
dpkg -r urserver
If you'd like to delete (purge) the package completely (with configuration files), you'll have to run:
dpkg -P urserver
You may check if the package has been removed successfully - simply run again:
dpkg -l urserver
If the package has been removed without configuration files, you'll see the
rc status near the package name, otherwise, if you have purged the package completely, the output will be empty.
