Try running the following command. It will reinstall the package and then remove it.



sudo apt-get install --reinstall ubuntu-tweak && sudo apt-get remove --purge ubuntu-tweak

I saw a lot in that script. Did it install or not?

Type

sudo dpkg --get-selections > installed

and in your home directory there should be a file called "installed". Right click on it and open it in text editor, scroll through the list and see if it is installed.

also you may try removing it using aptitude:

That should probably be:


sudo aptitude purge ubuntu-tweak

(otherwise it treats "purge" as a package name)

for commands which allready have been tryed.


the best thing you may do is extract the package using dpkg, copy all files where they should be and then try an uninstall.

i belive that the package itself may be bad or something messed it up since you get this phyton error


EDIT: for an complete description of the command

use

dpkg --extract ~/Desktop/ubuntu-tweak_0.4.9-1~karmic1_i386.deb ~/Desktop/ubuntu-tweak_0.4.9-1~karmic1_i386/

if that dosn't help and also


sudo dpkg --force-all --purge ubuntu-tweak is unable to remove the package then it is not possible to remove it using apt, synaptic or dpkg

EDIT:


Unlike dpkg, apt-get does not understand .deb files, it works with the packages proper name and can only install .deb archives from a source specified in /etc/apt/sources.list. apt-get will call dpkg directly after downloading the .deb archives

the problem isn't karmic or jaunty the problem is the package cant be removed using dpkg, apt, or synaptic

maybe downloading the correct version of the deb file and then extracting it and coping its contents to the correct locations would help to fix that problem

ok your version is "0.4.9-1~karmic1"

so you need ubuntu-tweak_0.4.9-1~karmic1_i386.deb

ubongo2008
September 17th, 2009, 09:17 PM
download the file and try


you can extract it using:


mkdir ~/Desktop/ubuntu-tweak_0.4.9-1~karmic1_i386
dpkg --extract ~/Desktop/ubuntu-tweak_0.4.9-1~karmic1_i386.deb ~/Desktop/ubuntu-tweak_0.4.9-1~karmic1_i386/
Then copy everything using


ALT+F2 then gksudo nautilus where it should be
if that dosn't help and also


sudo dpkg --force-all --purge ubuntu-tweak is unable to remove the package then it is not possible to remove it using apt, synaptic or dpkg

that would be something for an bugreport in my opinion

As i already said it is an alpha version which you have had installed

you should save it to your desktop for the above commands

By the way i am also on jaunty but amd64 so it is no problem for dpkg on jaunty to deal with karmic packgages

In terminal:


locate ubuntu-tweak

A list of file locations shows up in terminal.

Just open nautilus as root:


gksudo nautilus

and while looking at the terminal, go to those folders and just remove the offending software manually.

Just delete anything with the ubuntu-tweak name on it.

Then you're done.

Hint:

If the web site for the software is written in real bad English, you may want to reconsider installing that software.

***************************************
the uninstall routines insisted that one of the .py files was not a directory so I fired up dolphin as a superuser and deleted the offending .py file using the path listed in the terminal window that's listed as "details" when you use synaptic pkg. mgr. to try and uninstall. the error message gives a lot of detail regarding file locations. there were details in python directory regarding ubuntu-tweak that got trashed. Then the directory listed in the error details. Then the offending .py file listed in the error detail. Then cleaned out trash. Debug log then shows, "2009-09-18 09:44:24 status not-installed ubuntu-tweak <none>" I think this is what we want. after the detetions the synaptic pkg. mgr. did not show the item. The acid test comes upon reboot, I was ready to reinstall everything if this didn't work, but I will add a post to let you lnow how it worked. Please forgive the long winded message, but I wanted to help out, here.

On restart, Ubuntu-tweak is gone from the menus. unsuccessful attempts to uninstall will yield a message, if you look at it there is a "details" caret. Click the caret to find out where to find the files that hang the uninstall process. I copied the message to file, and went after the files manually. I went at it in kind of a ham-handed way yet did not break the OS. That is a testament to the robust nature of Ubuntu!! (pride goeth before a fall, snicker) I will check back 4 u, hope this helps.:)

"/usr/share/python-support/ubuntu-tweak.private is not a directory "
seems to come up alot for you.. My synaptic mistook a .py file for a directory and ended process with similar error code. I used a file manager with the code gksudo nautilus and found the single entry that synaptic was choking on, (the full path is in the error details) then deleted that file. Then I reran synaptic to remove the rest of it. Reboot.

I hate to say it, but the best way of going forward may be to nuke the drive and start again. I ran into similar problems with ubuntu-tweak. Thankfully I had the prescience to have /home on a separate partition and didn't lose any data.

I will grant that this was essentially self-imposed -- I accidentally downloaded the karmic package for ubu-tweak and proceeded to install it on my jaunty system... :lolflag:

Though you can try what Brad54 said. It just might work.

I forgot the single most important lesson: Do not go installing things when you are dog tired (as I was at the time).
