linux dc++ is blocked and I can't start it

Asked by Renato on 2014-06-07

Hello! I succesfully installed linux dc++ on ubuntu 12.04 and used it, but I connected to too many hubs or to some hub that isn't supported by linux dc++ and that blocks it, so when I start up the program now it automatically starts to load all the hubs, but then it close itself. It seems to be blocked/freezed to some hub that I connected in. I tryed to uninstall and reinstall it but it still continue to load the hubs and be freezed. I tryed to use these commands:
sudo dpkg --purge linuxdcpp
sudo dpkg -l | grep linuxdcpp
sudo apt-get dpkg -l | grep linuxdcpp
sudo apt-get purge linuxdcpp
sudo apt-get remove --purge linuxdcpp

but, as I said, nothing happened and it's still blocked. What can I do? How to completelly remove linuxdc++ configuration files, preferences, settings, hubs, etc.?

linuxdcpp will create a config folder in your home directory, IIRC something like .linuxdcpp (the period in front usually hides it from `ls`, so use `ls -lah` to show even hidden/files folders to find it). Delete that folder to remove all the settings you have saved.

In the home I didn't found .linuxdcpp but only ".dc++" and ".dc" folders. Do I have to delete both?

It is just the .dc++ folder, the .dc folder might be for another DC client. You can always look at the files inside the folders to be sure of what they are.
