Hi LC Dev team,

How does one run a clean uninstall of the Livecode Community Plus 9.0 version from ubuntu 18.04.1 LTS
command line...or else...
Thanks...

( Not part of the Lc Dev team, but I stayed at a Holiday Express Inn last night, does that count? :P )

Depending on how you installed it (everyone, or just you) -
  • Installed for just you - go to /home/userName/.runrev/components/livecodecommunity-8.1.4.x86_64/ and click on the file that says "setup.x86_64"
  • Installed for everyone - go to ( I believe, someone correct me if I'm wrong :oops: ) /opt/.runrev/components/livecodecommunity-VersionNumber.x86_64/ and click on the file that says "setup.x86_64"
  • IF you don't find it in either of those locations (hard to believe if you choose the default, but you might have gone custom ) then go to the folder you installed it too and look for "setup.x86_64".

Whatever office place even with a pool nearby counts for sure ! :D
I think I went super special custom install
...no setup exe file found by the Search Feature...and I can't find a .runrev folder either :roll:

maybe I should run install again and write down where it goes, then uninstall

Dot directories (.runrev for example) are hidden folders. When looking, make sure hidden folders are displayed.

I'll load the distro up in a VM and i'll take a look and put the most likely spots you'd find it to see if you can find it on yours.

Ok, so here are the default options for the folder locations, and the un-install file, with some pictures :mrgreen:

First, the paths to the un-installer for Ubuntu (minus custom, of course) -

Code: Select all

Path for just you install - /home/YourUserName/.runrev/components/livecodecommunity-9.0.0.x86_64/setup.x86_64

Path for everyone install - /opt/livecode/livecodecommunity-9.0.0.x86_64/setup.x86_64
Now pictures -
1.) Make sure you have "Show HIdden" ticked -
Image
2.) Here is the path if you installed for just you -
Image
3.) Here is the path if you installed for everyone -
Image
4.) When you get to the location you installed to, you will be looking for this file (cursor is over the file) -
Image
5.) After clicking that file and uninstalling, to completely finish, delete the left over folders (if any) -
Image
** Note - for the last step, if you installed for everyone, you will have to be root to delete the folder in 'opt'.

Hope that helps you out some, but of course, if you really did do a custom super secret location, you may have problems locating it, since Ubuntu apparently has a problem finding certain files.

Code: Select all

# Terminal output - 
ubuntu@ubuntu:~$ find .runrev
.runrev
.runrev/components
ubuntu@ubuntu:~$ locate .runrev
ubuntu@ubuntu:~$ find setup.x86_64
find: ‘setup.x86_64’: No such file or directory
ubuntu@ubuntu:~$ find livecode
find: ‘livecode’: No such file or directory
ubuntu@ubuntu:~$ find livecodecommunity
find: ‘livecodecommunity’: No such file or directory
ubuntu@ubuntu:~$ find livecodecommunity-9.0.0.x86_64
find: ‘livecodecommunity-9.0.0.x86_64’: No such file or directory
ubuntu@ubuntu:~$ sudo find livecodecommunity-9.0.0.x86_64
find: ‘livecodecommunity-9.0.0.x86_64’: No such file or directory
