Uninstall error

Asked by Salah on 2016-01-06


I am trying to uninstall the using the command ./setup.py uninstall --manifest=install-files.txt , running from the same installation folder and it gives me an error: error in 'manifest' option: 'install-files.txt' does not exist or is not a file.

How I could remove it, and how I can install it from OS package system. I am using Kali 2.0 (sana).

Does the file install-files.txt exist in the current folder?
How did you originally install it? With setup.py?
When you originally installed with setup.py did you use the --record=install-files.txt as described in the INSTALL file? If not then the files were never recorded.

If you have no install-files.txt you will probably have to remove the files by hand. For that you will need to examine the list of paths and files/globs near the end of setup.py and remove them individually.

For installing in Kali, I use Ubuntu, but http://lmgtfy.com/?q=kali+linux+terminator :-)

Can you help with this problem?
