    Can't uninstall Xeoma

    hello,

    I installed Xeoma through the Ubuntu Software center and now cannot uninstall. I still have XeomaCore and XeomaClient loading at start up.

    - Unistalled through the software center. However it didn't uninstall although the center says it did.

    - tried sudo apt-get remove Xeoma (along with all variants client and core) and still can't remove the software.

    Any suggestions?

    On a separate note, how do I get to rate this software in the software center?

    Best regards,
    Dave

    Hi ,
    Open a terminal and use this command
    Code:
    sudo apt-get purge $(dpkg -l | awk '/^rc/ { print $2 }')
    Post the results back here if you want.
    Click on "New Reply" and put the results inside [CODE] tags to be easier to read. See here how

    First of all you have to install the software (as you did) , then you should have a Software Center account. If you don't , just create one. SSO is a requirement.

     The following packages were automatically installed and are no longer required:  
       gimp-help-en gimp-help-common  
     Use 'apt-get autoremove' to remove them.  
     The following packages will be REMOVED: 
       gimp* gimp-data* libavcodec53* libavutil51* libbabl-0.0-0* libblas3gf* libgegl-0.0-0* libgfortran3* libgimp2.0* libgtkglext1*

    Re: Can't uninstall Xeoma

    This is weird really. You know , I searched for this program through apt-get and I cannot find anything.
    Code:
    apt-cache search xeoma
    , I used synaptic package manager but to no avail , maybe another name ?

    [offtopic]I don't know why such programs approved for Ubuntu software center , but this is just my opinion. As I read in reviews (because I haven't tested it) is a commercial program with lot of restrictions and this is not mentioned in description. (also a restricted and not open source program). [/offtopic]

    Try to locate the program with locate command
    Code:
    locate <program name>
    and use rm command (carefully) to delete any remains.

    Also take a look in software center (history or installed) and try to locate what installed through this program.

    Also you can take a look in dpkg-log and see if something is there (about what program(s) installed through this xeoma)
    Code:
    cat /var/log/dpkg.log > dpkg.txt
    gedit dpkg.txt
    Thanks

    Re: Can't uninstall Xeoma

    Hello,

    Here is what I am getting:

    Code:
    apt-cache search xeoma
    xeoma - Construction-set principle video surveillance software
    xeoma-bin - Construction-set principle video surveillance software
    Locate xeoma didn't find anything:

    Code:
    dave@Ubuntu-VirtualBox:~$ locate xeoma
    dave@Ubuntu-VirtualBox:~$ sudo locate xeoma
    dave@Ubuntu-VirtualBox:~$
    Nor did Locate xeoma-bin

    What's most interesting is the history in the software center says it was removed? But it tries to load everytime I boot

    Additional information: Found the program under /home/dave/bin/Xeoma and I renamed the program. Well see what that does?

    Hi ,
    good thought. Search in bin and/or sbin and try to locate any remains. Rename them and see if better. If yes , I think you can remove them safely , with rm command.
    Also you can use find command like this
    Code:
    sudo find / -iname xeoma
    Thanks
