View Full Version : [ubuntu] How do I uninstall Ultamatix?!

January 22nd, 2009, 07:29 PM
It keeps giving me an error, I was going to get rid of it, but it doesn't show up in my Add/Remove Programs list, and running the .deb again only gives me the option to reinstall.

If you installed it with dpkg (.deb), you can remove it with dpkg also.

sudo dpkg -r package_name

I removed Ultamatix by opening terminal and executing the following command:

sudo apt-get remove ultamatix

Also, don't forget to remove the repositories that Ultamatix inserted in your sources list:

sudo gedit /etc/apt/sources.list

Delete starting at #ULTAMATIX REPOS START, all the way down to #ULTAMATIX REPOS END

You'll want to open terminal again and update your sources:

sudo apt-get update

Thanks for the info. I'm using Ultamatix but so far have no intention (yet) to uninstall it as it seems to be stable and very helpful in installing games for me.

I'll keep this post in mind though for any future reference.

Just be aware it can break your system. See http://mjg59.livejournal.com/99905.html

Thanks, I'm being careful with it.

After a day of tinkering with Ultamatix, I, as a very novice user found that it could indeed be dangerous.

I'm not saying that it's a bad program altogether but tinkering too much may lead to an unstable system.

Yes I was careful but in my tinkering I have also learned that it isn't all that needed.

I removed it...

Will just try to learn Synaptic Package Manager instead and read more of the forum posts for more knowledge.

I would recommend Ultamatix for the installation of some of the games listed in it though but still BE WARNED.
