/var/log/dpkg.log lists all install commands with time stamps, just do a grep. Also, /var/log/apt/history.log lists all apt-get activity, including packages installed or removed in one go.

Did you install it on the same partiton? If so, and without wubi, you lost windows... If you didn't go to terminal (windows key, type "terminal") and type in "sudo update-grub" then type in your password. This would add windows to the list you'll see when you power up. Select from the list "windows (loader)" if it exsist.

If the programs are not working when you try to launch them, it might just be their shortcuts which remain in the dash. You can use the program "Alacarte" also known as "Main Menu" to edit applications appearing in the dash:

Actually, as a pure Linux Noob, I think that you are both wrong. I think in this application it should be: sudo apt-get remove libavcodec53 libavutil51 The OP wants to install the Restricted Extras package, not uninstall it.

if you have the install discs and the Windows CD key, reinstalling Windows back onto the PC would be simple. As for the games, I believe that a couple of the Valve Source games are available natively on Linux, as well as a few other miscellaneous games. Though, most games aren't compatible or you would need to run through Wine, but that's not saying that ...

The easy way of getting the lamp to get working on any GNU/LINUX is getting the XAMPP for linux ( https://www.apachefriends.org/download.html ). This one comes with phpmyadmin as well. If you want to make your own LAMP server, then it might prove to a headache.

Uninstall did this, not purge. Don't feel bad, I think we've all done it at one point in time or another. Run the command again, however, this time run the command sudo apt-get purge wine without the * mark and this time, submit "n" to not uninstall at this time. Now, before you execute the command again, you should take note of the list of programs ...

User-installed fonts are stored in $HOME/.local/share/fonts/. Just delete the unwanted files in there.

if you are still interested... Mobile Partner is not a standard .deb so it won't be present on Synaptic. You need to use their dedicated script located here /usr/local/Mobile_Partner/UninstallMobilePartner

You only need to type: sudo apt-get purge firefox and then type y for "Yes", and Enter That took care of everything. Firefox is now off of my computer and Google Chrome is doing a great job.

If you installed it via terminal such as sudo apt-get reddit-script you can remove it by typing in the command sudo apt-remove reddit-script. If you didnt install it that way try it anyway. Also with a program you installed there is a uninstaller

Try sudo make uninstall. This target is usually configured in make installations.

It totally depends on the author of the makefile. Sometimes you can run sudo make uninstall from the same directory that you ran that command from, but it's rather rare honestly. This is why it is usually best to install only from .deb packages, since they almost always can be cleanly removed from your system.

sudo make uninstall is usually defined and removes most, if not all, files that were installed.

At the disk setup screen when installing Windows you will need to choose the partition where Windows is currently installed and leave the Ubuntu partition(s) alone. Windows will override the grub boot loader. After you install Windows you will need to do as ki2ne suggests: run grub-install from a live Ubuntu CD/DVD/Flash drive.

Its just something comes into my mind, a bad Idea may be... Just FORMAT the drive that contains the windows, Most probably C drive Please comment the result if somebody had allready dont this.

What have you been smoking? ;-) You are making your life way too difficult: Just install gParted in Ubuntu and you can remove any partition that is not mounted. That, ofcourse, includes your XP partition. From gParted you can also merge the removed partition into your current one or create a separate partition for Ubuntu. Only if you want to delete the ...

You could try going into the Software Centre and installing WINE 1.4 for Ubuntu that will allow you to run certain windows programs in linux... Installing Windows 8.1 itself will require a licensed DVD and will remove the option to boot into Ubuntu...

WindowsSetupBox.exe is a Windows program, you cannot run it on Ubuntu. If you don't have a Windows DVD, you need to burn one or prepare a USB installer. Next, you need to boot using the DVD or USB and install Windows.

You'll have to check how your disk is set up. If you don't have any NTFS primary partitions, you'll have to make one (or resize the one with the most free space). Then you install Windows XP on that NTFS partition. Once you've done that, boot into a live system (live DVD, or USB flash drive), then run grub-install During the install, GRUB will detect your ...

This is technically a Steam question, not really an Ubuntu question, but here goes! Since Steam is a game manager, all installs and uninstalls can be done directly inside the Steam itself. Here are the steps to uninstall a game: Open Steam and click on the big 'Library' button at the top of the window (you will see it in-between 'Store' and 'Community'). ...

I must be really mistaking if line 4,7, 8 and 360 not mean that there is simply an uninstall script in /opt/Photon_3G/ZTE/MF190/uninstall.sh Since in line line 360 it shows there should be an uninstaller script: chmod 0755 $INSTALL_PATH/uninstall.sh while in lineline 4/7: NEW_FILE_PATH_TATA=Photon_3G/ZTE/MF190 SYS_PATH=/opt and in line 8: ...

So it seems like tha main program it's all in one folder. To remove it, I may try with: sudo rm -R /opt/Photon_3G But be careful cause the installer it also changes the content of several files and add others here and there. That's a tricky stuff. They really should provide you with an uninstaller... anyway, you can explore the changes they did but ...

None of it worked for me. What i did 1. Ctrl+Alt+T to run terminal 2. sudo su to log as super user 3. enter your su password 4. cd .local/share/applications 5. ls -l See if you see .desktop in here. If you do, then issue rm -f -r .desktop to delete the file

Note the first two letters of the output of dpkg -l tor which says un u: Unknown (an unknown state) n: Not- The package is not currently installed sometimes dpkg keeps such entries for references.

The simplest way would be use a liveCD and format the drive without reinstalling. You can do that with a normal Ubuntu Live CD just boot from it, then open a terminal and run sudo gparted Then delete the partitions you have defined and shutdown without installing. There you go, you now have an unpartitioned disk and a computer returned to a pristine ...
