Ok I can't get this uninstall script for Americas Army:Operations to do didly squat. So how do I go about removing this game? I thought about just doing a rm-rf but I'm sure linux has to be somewhat like windows, as in, it has to put some kind of entries whereas windows adds registry entries. And any windows user knows entries in your registry to programs/games that don't exists are not good things to have. The best I can do in way of info is give you guys the tidbit of what's in the uninstall shell script.
The following is contained within before mentioned uninstall script..
if which loki-uninstall > /dev/null 2>&1; then
if [ ! -x "$UNINSTALL" ]; then
echo Could not find a usable uninstall program. Aborting.
"$UNINSTALL" "/home/ghost/armyops/.manifest/armyops.xml" "$1"
I've some really good news. This isn't Windows and there is no Registry. It actually is that simple. Open a terminal and type the filename of the uninstall script and it should run. You might have to logon as root and use the full path to the script. What distro is it?
Well so far your the second person to confirm what I had thought. yeah THANK GOD it's not windows... down with windows, um.. UP? with linux! hehe. I'm using Mandrake 9.1 and I didn't need the full path to the rm script so I should be set. Most likely I don't need to logon as root because believe it or not I was able to do the install as my user. So I don't see why I can't remove it as my user, I didn't notice I was logged as my user til the install finished, lol.
