how to make sure its uninstalled on debian
iapt-get install deborphan debfoster
#apt-get remove –purge package
the later will clean out /var
will show all the files and libraries that are still left over after the apt-get remove –purge is carried out, if you don’t recognise a library, keep it, later on, deborphan will give you a list of ‘orphaned’ libraries that are hanging with no use, and are safe to nuke.
if you make a mistake with debfoster, type ‘u’ and it will ask you again if you want to keep it. When you are through with it, invoke deborphan.
will give a list of libraries that are hanging just taking space and ready to be nuked so lets get rid of them:
#deborphan | xargs apt-get -y remove purge
when thats done :
and that should be it folks
