[Solved] How to uninstall LiveCode on Debian 7 (Wheezy)?

Postby MagicFab » Fri Apr 19, 2013 12:48 pm

Hi,

I had previously installed LiveCode 5.x on a test system. How can it be safely/cleanly uninstalled?

I haven't been able to install the latest version so I can't test uninstalling it. I don't have access to the older test system at the moment.

I can't seem to find any documentation about this and the User Guide which I can't link yet since I am new here dates back to 2010 and doesn't mention that.

Contrary to user documentation, there isn't a script or binary to uninstall an existing LiveCode version.

Deleting/moving the existin directory under /opt seemed enough to be able to use/install a newer version.

LC comes with a tool for removing it cleanly. If you have it installed for all users in the default location, that is to say "/opt/runrev", then go into "livecodecommunity-X.X.X" and launch "./.setup.x86" which will uninstall LC. It will remove all files in the "/opt/runrev/livecodecommunity-X.X.X" as well aw the icon in the menu. That's it.
Best,
CILz

Thanks CILz - your solution worked great for me yesterday on a raspberry pi 2
