Problem in deleling a software/package


Hi all folks,

RH8.0
Sylpheed-claws
=============

I tried to remove "sylpheed-claws" from RH8.0. It was installed from tarball and placed under

/home/user/.sylpheed

I deleted its folder including files on Konqueror "Home". But it can still be started.

As ROOT
# locate sylpheed

/home/user/.sylpheed
/home/user/.sylpheed/
........
.........

It was still there but disappeared on Konqueror

Neither could I
# rm /home/user/.sylpheed
rm: cannot lstat `/home/satimis/.sylpheed': No such file or directory

# cd /home/satimis/.sylpheed
-bash: cd: /home/satimis/.sylpheed: No such file or directory

Kindly advise how to erase it. Why it was not shown up on Konqueror (Show hidden files already ON)

Thanks in advance.

B.R.

locate uses a database that probably hasn't been updated since you removed the folder. Try running this as root first:
updatedb

Hi all,

Ah, I forgot to run updatedb. Reboot PC did not help to update database.

Also I overlooked to erase

/root/.sylpheed/

That was why sylpheed still could be started.

Thanks
