Installed azureus vuze from the terminal. Im not thrilled with it and want to remove it.I used the comand sudo apt-get remove azureus and Code: sudo apt-get remove vuze it then listed a buch of files no longer needed so I erased them as well. The program is still there and operational. I tried the above again and it says that they dont exsist. I even looked for them in synaptic and the software center with no luck but I expected that. What am I missing?
I recently installed Acetone ISO in the hopes of installing a program, but alas it doesn't do what I need it to (run the MDF file like a disk rather than showing all the files in it, and because this is a multi-disk thing I'm installing I'm kinda stuck now) and I noticed it would make a new virtual drive every time I mounted an image, and I wound up with four of them, and each one had its own shortcut on my desktop. Well, I removed the program and deleted the folder it created, but these shortcuts are still on my desktop. And they are UNTOUCHABLE!
The command line ls -al ~/Desktop/ will show everything on the desktop BUT THEM, they have no permissions, and cannot be moved, copied, or deleted, because Ubuntu can't find volume information on them. I reinstalled the program to see if anything would help, and I noticed that the drives would go away if I unmounted the image (I coulda sworn I told it to before, but it didn't want to...) but now these drives are errors to the program, and I still can't remove the shortcuts.
as much as i am one for saving space and throwing out the trash. now my problem is the fact that I DO NOT WANT THIS program (localepurge) running on my system. i look and did everything i could. note : i am a noobie. when i config the program from the start i told it NO don't delete anything. and now that i have done some reading i do not want it working period. i could not find a way to disable or uninstall localepurge.
Well I have installed Wine for the propose of running easyphp program which can be found at [URL]... I installed it on my windows machine and like it. I want to run it on this machine because I have it hooked up to my tv and I have a wireless mouse and keyboard so I can program or whatever from the bed. Anyways, I need to remove the stuff I installed though this tread. [URL]... The reason for removing the installed stuff is because I believe it is occupying port 80 which I need open for easyphp. How do I uninstall this stuff I installed?
I did apt-get install qtcreator and it installed qt 4.5.3(qt4.5.2real) I had qt 4.5.2. If I go in Applications->programming I see 2 shortcuts for qtcreator, one of them being newer. How do I remove the older one? On another note, if I want to update Qt to 4.6 what would be the steps if I already have qt 4.5
I installed nagios program from tar.gz file (from source basically). I didn't use dpkg or apt-get, I used 'configure','make install' and then 'make' scripts. How can I remove this progrma from debian system ?
I just downloaded a new app(vrs call logging) which doesn't work very well. I'm just trying to figure out how to properly remove the program. I've drilled down to the "uninstall.sh" but it will not run the uninstall program.
I'm using slackware 13.37 and I must say that I really like this distro and the biggest problem is the lack of dependency handling. This is something that bites you right away because you have this nice clean simple operating system but unless you really know what's dependent on what you have to install piles of stuff with lots of programs with duplicate functions. A minimal install option would be nice and I can see from some of the threads that even those with a good deal of experience have had a hard time doing a minimal install. I tried about ten times using different guides but I always ended up with something broken so now I have the full install running fine but with tons of stuff that I don't want or need including most of kde. Anyway, I don't think that the slackware people are going to change their minds about dependency handling anytime this century.
Although for those who have said that it's a FEATURE, I'd point out that all distros have this feature, JUST DON'T USE THEIR PACKAGE MANAGER! So with all that said, I think it's a shame about the lack of dependency handling but I still like slackware well enough to use it even though I find the dependency thing quite annoying. I know that there are people here that have a lot more experience than I do and maybe there are some tools that could make this business easier. So how do you go about removing programs? Debian has deborphan and Arch has pacman -Rd. When you remove a program in slackware, how do you then get rid of all the unneeded dependencies?
So I had decided to install debian but I thought I couls do it by myself without anything which I was wrong about, because I wound up installing Debian on my C: drive/windows partition. So far nothing has been bad and I am still running windows but now my C: drive has been renamed to "Install Debian GNU/Linux" I know the name doesn't mean shit but I'm curious why every time I go to change it it auto changes back. Also now every time it boots up it asks me to choose between UNetbootin, which i uninstalled, and windows. how do i get rid of the option to remove unetbootin even though I uninstalled the program. Same with Debian I deleted everything i could find but it still changes the drive name, how to fix any of this and might there be files I haven't found where would they be located?
A question on the packages installed. Went to program add/remove and found many unusual languages supported. Will I have problems if I remove them?? Also is KDE any better than GNOME for the desktop. recommendation on a book covering Fedora that the inexperienced can understand.
I installed WINE, and decided to remove it after installing something, I was unable to uninstall, so I just removed WINE, now, I have the program stuck in my main menu. I deleted the path and stuff, but it's still there. How do I get rid of it?
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?
I have now almost completed my aim of using Debian and PClinuxOS on different installed hard disks. For PCLOS I use an On-Disk set of disks which I have installed on a separate hard disk which serves as a repository from Synaptic, which makes program install/remove very quick. Is it possible to do the same thing with the 5 DVD's for Debian lenny on another hard disk?
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
I have just installed pdfocr. Unfortunately it does not have a gui and so in time I will forget how to use it or not remember I have it.
Is there a simple generic program that will browse to where the file is and then run the command line? I suspect python will do it. Could someone point me to a suitable tutorial for this purpose.code...
I am going to do a web based search for several thousand webpages which may or may not exist. I just want a list of the addresses which work. I dont want to load into firefox, and I'd preffer not to ping the url. I just want to test the URLs for validity and kick back a list of good URLs. Any Ideas on a simple program to do this, which I can use in a bash script?
I have just switched to banshee as my media player and imported my films and music. Problem is, the video list is quite hard to read because all the video files have spaces in their names which are replaced by % signs, numbers and letters. I'm wondering if there is a command I can use in the directory that will automatically remove all the spaces from the filenames or better still, replace the spaces with hyphens or underscores?
