I downloaded a .sh program (in this case is a game) and then I installed using "sh name.sh" (or maybe it was "bash name.sh". I don't remember quite well, but I guess it has no importance in this case :P).
Everything worked as planned. The .sh created a folder in /usr/local/games/ and from there I can run the game from a .bin (I created a "link to application" in my Desktop to run it faster).
So far so good, but now I want to remove/uninstall the game but I don't know how (I guess that neither apt-get or dpkg work in this particular case. Correct me if I'm wrong).
So my question is, how can I remove/unistall this game?
Tyvm in advance for any reply.
I tried to open and read the .sh (actually, it was the first thing I did), but when I open it, the editor (kate in this case) warns me with the following message:
The file /home/user/Games/name/name.sh was opened with UTF-8 encoding but contained invalid characters.
It is set to read-only mode, as saving might destroy its content.
Either reopen the file with the correct encoding chosen or enable the read-write mode again in the menu to be able to edit it.
And when I try to do anything, such as find or select something, my computer gets numb and 'overloaded' and it doesn't let me do anything (almost as a freeze), and since the code is big I can't just read line by line until I find the part(s) I'm looking for.
The folder that was created when installed (in /usr/local/games/) has the following:
name.bin.x86_64 name.png README.linux xdg-utils (folder) xdg-desktop-menu name.dat lib64 (folder) libfreeimage.so.3 libminizip.so.1 libSDL2-2.0.so.0 xdg-open
I guess that xdg-desktop-menu is used in this case to uninstall the game since when I type in the terminal: "xdg-desktop-menu --help", one of the lines says:
xdg-desktop-menu uninstall [--noupdate] [--mode mode] directory-file(s) desktop-file(s)
But I'm not sure how to use it. Have someone used something like this? or based in the line above, in this case, what should I type?
