installing limewire-pro


Hi all

I am trying to install limewire-pro, after having limwire-free installed.

I manually deleted ~/.limewire, /usr/bin/limewire and also /usr/share/applications/limewire.desktop

when I do dpkg -i limewirexxxx.deb I get:

Code:
(Reading database ... 112472 files and directories currently installed.)
Unpacking limewire-pro (from limewire-pro_4.8.0-1_i386.deb) ...
dpkg: error processing limewire-pro_4.8.0-1_i386.deb (--install):
 trying to overwrite `/usr/share/applications/LimeWire.desktop', which is alsoin package limewire-free
dpkg-deb: subprocess paste killed by signal (Broken pipe)
Errors were encountered while processing:
 limewire-pro_4.8.0-1_i386.deb
The file limewire.desktop isnt there, I deleted it myself.

Any ideas? Thanks

Hong

you can't just manually delete the odds and sods from a package... you need to remove the package properly... i.e. "limewire-free". what's you've done will just send you on a one way trip to a horribly broken system

Ok, this is just typically me...

I ended up just doing a 'locate limewire' and then deleting all references...

It worked.

Probably not the right way, but the newbies way!

I realised there was probably a 'proper' way (maybe a command?) to uninstall it but I couldnt find the info anywhere on Google or Limewire.com so I did it the best I could.

Thanks

I dunno. Certainly worth looking into though...

what would I do? dpkg -e .....then what? Location of the original .deb file (if I got it) ?

Thanks

.deb? pro?

And where, if I may so ask, did you find a .deb for LimeWire pro?
