Going from Gnome1.4 to 2.4, need help, please


Since I'm making the move between 1.4 and 2.4, I decided it would be best for me to remove LimeWire and OpenOffice, then once I get Gnome2.4 installed, install the two programs properly for once. Would anyone be willing to tell me how to uninstall LimeWire? When I ran the install program, it didn't give me the option to uninstall, which to me seems odd.... I know there has to be a simple way to do it, but I just don't know what it is.....

how did you install it, i mean source, rpm or what? What's your distro? Not that this answers your question, but you shouldn't need to uninstall these programs, for them to work in gnome 2 unless you feel there's something dodgy about the way they're set up.

I installed them from sh commands. I would just like to get them off of my /home partition and get them onto my / partition(two different disks, /home is on a much smaller HDD) I'm on Slack8.1, thinking of maybe moving up a level or so come Christmas time, when I have more free time.

Well, the only idea i have is, if you still have the installers, to do whater.sh --uninstall, or --help and see if it gives you any options to uninstall. If not, there doesn't seem to be an easy way, and you'll have to manually remove what you can. Sorry! Best of luck with it.

Well, I tried to remove Gnome1.4, but in doing so, I also hosed up my computer. So now I've decided it's time to go from Slack8.1 to 9.0, and I'll put Gnome2.4 on without bothering with 2.2 or whatever comes with Slack9. I'll also have to check out KDE, just to see if there are any changes....

Ah well, it might be the easiest way . If it's not critical you might want to wait for 9.1, i don't know how soon that'll be out, but its bound to have new everything. You should be able to get the beta already. Have fun anyway
