How do you uninstall a program?
I installed VirtualBox with SPM but it doesn't work correctly on my 64 ubuntu so after reading forums saw that a manual install from site seemed to fix the kernel error message I was getting. I downloaded the .deb and tried to install but it says its already installed so it won't install or write over the old package.
These manual installs don't seem to show up on my "Add/Remove" menu. So reading up more on the forums someone posted a basic command to remove a package:
sudo dpkg -r vmware
however, when I try to run that i get an error message:
dpkg - warning: ignoring request to remove virtualbox which isn't installed.
Any tips on how I can uninstall. Also is there a better way to take off a package you've installed. For instance I installed vmware but want to take it off. If i enter sudo dpkg -r vmware then I just get the same "can't find" error message.
