    uninstalling vmware?

    I've installed vmware server on my Ubuntu 8.04. Actually the installation failed and now I don't know how to remove all the files extracted.
    Any advice?

    Try removing it from Synaptic.

    Only the xorg for vmware appear in Synaptics...

    Here is a part of installation copied from Terminal (I don't know how to copy all because more than I paste here doesn't appear)

    Edit bodhi.zazen : clipped out the long output, the majority of which was the VMWare license agreement.

    To get VMWare working, see this thread :

    http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=779934

    If you want to remove vmware, run

    Code:
    sudo vmware-uninstall.pl
    Not sure of the location of this script, it may be in the same location as the install script or in /usr/bin/vmware-uninstall.pl
    There are two mistakes one can make along the road to truth...not going all the way, and not starting.
