Can't Delete With Common CLI Commands In Proteus

Post#1 by jimwg » 28 Jul 2014, 08:43

Greetings!

The command line in Proteus won't work with commands like this:

sudo apt-get autoremove openoffice-*

How do I delete all traces of openoffice?

Thanks!

did 'apt-get' really become a part of the coreutils package?

joking aside:
you should deactivate openoffice module and job done. it's traces (like settings, caches, etc) will still persist in your changes if you save them (the same apply to *buntu and every other linux) so you can only delete those manually.

if you have installed openoffice from txz package (rather than activated a module) then run 'removepkg openoffice' to uninstall it.
Please add [Solved] to your thread title if the solution was found.
