    Arrow [OS-Uninstaller] Safely remove Windows, Ubuntu... in 1 clic !

    OS-UNINSTALLER is a small graphical tool to uninstall any OS (Windows, MacOS, Ubuntu, other GNU/Linux ..) in 1 click !

    Enjoy !



    Screenshot :



    Download/Install OS-Uninstaller in Ubuntu :
    either add ‘ppa:yannubuntu/boot-repair’ to your Software Sources via the Software Centre or, for speeds-sake, add it using a new Terminal session:

    * sudo add-apt-repository ppa:yannubuntu/boot-repair
    * sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get install -y os-uninstaller


    OS-Uninstaller can be installed & used from any Ubuntu session (normal session, or live-CD, or live-USB).

    PPA packages are available for current versions of Ubuntu.

    Use OS-Uninstaller:
    Launch it from System->Administration->OS-Uninstaller menu if you use Gnome, or search "os" in the dash if you use Unity. Then follow the menus...

    Wow, that sounds good. Thanks

    I would want to try it but I don't have anything to un-install right now.

    I would add my testimonial if I get a chance and if anybody else gets it, please add.

    Just to make sure, it doesn't mess up the bootloader, right?

    Added: Ok, for my queries, I'd follow this thread so you don't have to answer it all over again. Also, you could add a link to that one in the above post?

    Of course not, you can check the "Advanced options". On the contrary, I would say I developped this app because some people thought they could uninstall any OS by simply deleting its partition, which of course caused problems with their boot

    OS-Uninstaller can be installed in any Ubuntu version or derivative, so I prefer to keep this thread focused on OS-Uninstaller only.

    Thanks ! Yes, I will propose this app to Debian&Ubuntu reps, but before I will wait several days for the translations to be completed

    Talking Re: [OS-Uninstaller] Safely remove Windows, Ubuntu... in 1 clic !

    Actually, this is an awesome tool. I somehow screwed up my Ubuntu install with updating...? ; couldn't get my computer to boot @ all. Which woulda really 'peed' my wife off since she still uses Vista! Anyway, I used an Ubuntu CD to get things booted, get on net, find this page; downloaded and got everything fixed! Thanks for this tool.

    Only one thing, I've got 10.04 LTS, I added it through PPA, but don't see it in my System-> Admin menu...any idea why?

    @hank22077: thanks for your feedback, and happy it helped. Concerning the icon : what language do you use in your Ubuntu ? can you type the following command:
    Code:
    ls /usr/share/applications | grep "ler"
    and tell me the result ?

    It's English. But...Actually, I went to System > Administration > Software Sources > Other Software to add ‘ppa:yannubuntu/os-uninstaller’. I guess that's why it didnt show.
    I got smart n thought "make it simple, stupid", and realized : Applications -> Ubuntu Software Center, found it and installed it. So now it shows in my menu.

    Thanks, again

    BTW
    Result:
    ls /usr/share/applications | grep "ler"
    file-roller.desktop
    gnome-theme-installer.desktop
    nautilus-folder-handler.desktop
    os-uninstaller.desktop

    I'm new to Ubuntu, and a 'low-level' web designer, so I assume that was a call to show results for things ending in "ler"...? Checking if uninstaller would come back...?

    glad to see you found a way to get the icon.
    And nice to see you are curious about commands, that's how I learned too the command lists all files containing "ler" in the folder /usr/share/applications . So you can see you have a "os-uninstaller.desktop" file, which is an entry for "OS-Uninstaller" in your menu.
