scim-chewing Removal


Okay, so a long time ago I got scim from the extras CD from Slackware. I removed the package from my computer via "removepkg scim-chewing.so.on.and.so.forth.txz" but even after that, it still stays on my computer and still works.

So I restart my computer, and it's still there. What did I do wrong?

Start pkgtool and try to remove it with that. Normally when I use removepkg I only specify the package name, not the filename of the package, for example removepkg scim-chewing in your case.

Would I have to theoretically re-install it again and then use pkgtool?

I would try it without installing first.

pkgtool is just giving me a blank. I typed in:

Code:
pkgtool scim-chewing
And I get nothing. The cursor is there and I can type but it doesn't appear any commands are working.

Just type
Code:
pkgtool
and choose the remove option, then search for the package and remove it.
