Fedora :: Fully Uninstalling Software - Remove All Packages With A Program Automatic?

Jan 3, 2010

I've installed yesterday xmms and now I want to uninstall it. I've done it with yum. When I uninstall it like this: "yum remove xmms", then yum removes this package, but, when I check "yum list | grep xmms" I get full list of other packages like bluecurve-xmms-skin.noarch, gkrellxmms2.x86_64, gxmms2.x86_64 , ...

I want to cleanly remove the xmms, so I should remove all this packages "manually"? Is there a method to check wich packages are not used by any program on my computer and remove them? Or any method to remove all packages with a program automatic?

Ubuntu :: Uninstalling Windows 7 - Remove Wubi?

Jun 8, 2010

I have been using Ubuntu Wubi for a few weeks now and am quite happy with it, and I am not missing Windows 7. This is not my first contact with Linux OS. In fact I have tinkled with Red Hat, SuSe and Fedora quite a few years back but never pursued them seriously as I found them difficult to use. Many people seem to be saying that "if you want to uninstall Ubuntu, just go to Windows Control Panel and uninstall Wubi like you would any other application and it will remove Wubi " But what if I wanted to uninstall Windows 7 and leave Ubuntu on the hard disk? Would I need to start from square one and re-install Ubuntu again?

Slackware :: Command For Uninstalling Packages By Program Name?

Aug 19, 2010

how to uninstall packages via the program name? For example, if I want to uninstall the program "KWordQuiz" then I would usually have to use the command removepkg -package name But unfortunately I have a fresh install and want to get rid of a lot of programs. So instead of using the package repository and finding each package which would take days (maybe) and removing them individually I'd like to remove a program and all its supporting packages. I am probably just rambling on... Umm, so yes is there a way, or do I have to suck it up and sit at the keyboard for days.

OpenSUSE :: Wine - Remove Menu Entries After Uninstalling Programs?

May 26, 2011

The only MS program I need on my computer is Word 2007 for the equation editor to write/edit files from work. So after installing Wine I installed MSOffice2007. Excel worked OK (although I don't need it - I am perfectly happy with the Libre Office spreadsheet). Word however froze each time so I tried to uninstall and reinstall it. However I always got an error message when trying to uninstall with Wine. So I followed the advice of some strands in this forum and deleted the Program Files folder from the ~.wine directory. However the menus are still in Wine/Programs/Microsoft Office even though they lead to nowhere. I tried to reinstall but still I nothing happened. I presume the old entries still lead to the position where previously the .exe files were located. Now my question is either how can I remove these menu entries and try installing again - or even better - is there a Linux programme that can read/edit the equations written in Word 2007?

I am setting up my shortcuts on Ubuntu (System -> Preferences -> Keyboard Shortcuts) and there is no way to remove a shortcut.

Debian Multimedia :: Remove Unwanted Shortcuts In GTK3 File Chooser?

Nov 22, 2015

There are these shortcuts in the GTK3 file chooser: [URL] ....

With the exception of "desktop" which I included in the red box by mistake, I don't want those shorcuts to be there. I've even deleted most of those folders from my home directory because I have no use for them, but the shortcuts remain even after the folders are gone.

How to remove/disable these shortcuts? And while I'm at it, I notice that it's not using my selected icon theme for those icons. Any way to make it use my choice of icon theme?

Fedora :: Installing Wine - Add / Remove Program Install Both 86_64 And I686 Files

When I install wine the add/remove program wants to install both 86_64 and i686 files. I have the x86_64 version of Fedora 14. I am having problems with counterstrike and have installed it using Wine, have noted problems when both types of files are installed.

I would like to have Fedora set up just right but as with all Linux distros, am having trouble keeping my head above water with fc14. I have success up to a point and then want to go back to Windows for its simplicity. Just this wine problem

Debian :: Uninstalling "Software Center" Wants To Remove Gnome?

Sep 18, 2010

Been using Debian Squeeze for a few days now and I think it's a SUPERB distro. Everything works perfectly.

To my topic: "Software-center" hangs forever when I try to browse non-installed packages. A search on this forum shows that it's probably a non-solvable bug. No problem, I use Synaptic and am very willing to learn CLI apt-get commands. But for now, uninstalling software-center through Synaptic also wants to uninstall gnome (I assume "all of it"?), and I'm not going to agree on that!

Fedora :: Remove Wine And Wine Installed Program?

Nov 19, 2010

I am new to fedora and installed wine to see if I could get the sony reader software working (required to access sony bookstore from my sony ereader). Well the program did not work though it did create icons on my desktop. wine kept crashing and I said lets just get rid of it. I uninstalled wine via yum remove and nothing appeared to happen so I did rpm -qa |grep wine and saw lots of stuff. So I simply did yum remove wine* and then a rpm -qa |grep wine was empty. however wine is still under applications on my desktop and still has a category for programs--reader. I should also mention that while wine was installed I attempted to remove the reader via the wine uninstalller but a) wine gave a message of a core crash and b) all the uninstaller did was give me the option to reinstall the reader program. so now when I attempt to open an epub it tries with the sony reader software. I know I can just right click to use another program but for now I want wine gone completely from my pc and the sony program gone.

Fedora :: Resizing Partitions Without Uninstalling OS?

Mar 22, 2011

I made quite a bit of partitions of different Linux distributions in an attempt to compile a massive program. (To those who do a bit of weather research, I'm trying to compile both WRF and WPS on 64 bit Linux.) I finally compiled the program on 64 bit Fedora 14, and now I'm running out of space on this partition. Is there a way to increase the size of a partition without uninstalling the current OS? I don't mind what happens to the other partitions, but I put quite a bit of effort in this current one. Also, the program demands that all of the data be contained in the same home directory, so I can't keep files in other partitions.

Fedora :: Ksysguard Won't Run After Uninstalling NVidia Driver

Dec 7, 2010

I installed the proprietary nVidia driver on my Fedora 14 x86_64 laptop, but then went back to the nouveau driver. Now System Monitor won't launch. From the command line I get:

$ ksysguard
ksysguard: error while loading shared libraries: libnvidia-tls.so.260.19.21: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

I reinstalled it, which went without error, but I still get the same error as above. I also tried installing libnvidia-tls, but yum just said there is no such package. Of course, the package is part of the nVidia proprietary driver package, but I don't want to reinstall that. I have the KDE desktop installed, but normally I boot to Gnome. How can I get ksysguard to run again?
