    Un-installing

    I wish to remove Dropbox from my PC but I can not remove it by the normal method ie..clicking on remove in software, it just gets so far and no further.

    Can it be removed in the terminal mode, if so what is the command.

    Regards Bob

    I don't know the proper package name, which you can probably find by browsing for it in Synaptic but then
    Code:
    sudo apt-get remove {dropbox-packagename}
    should work
    I'm thinking about it

    I tried that and this is the message I got.



    How do I do that.

    Just do what it's asking you to do. Open a terminal and enter the command:
    Code:
    sudo dpkg --configure -a
