I am using Ubuntu 12.10.
I downloaded from virtualbox.org the virtualbox package
I wanted to install it with
dpkg -i and terminal requested me to use command alien instead.
So I did
alien <package> then
dpkg -i <package> and used virtualbox.
Now I want to uninstall virtualbox (because something went wrong) because it was not installed with
sudo apt-get install.
I want to use command
dpkg -e <package> or
dpkg --purge <package> but this ends with report
file or directory not found
sudo dpkg -l | grep virtualbox
ii virtualbox-4.2 4.2.4-81684~Ubuntu~quantal amd64 Oracle VM VirtualBox rc virtualbox-qt 4.1.18-dfsg-1ubuntu1.1 amd64 x86 virtualization solution - Qt based user interface
what should I do next ?
