Installed Roadnav, found it useless, can't remove it.

Asked by Alden on 2008-09-07

Installed RoadNav and found it useless. "uninstall" doesn't list it as an application. Locating the RoadNav folder in "usr" "shared" doesn't allow sending it to trash. How can I uninstall or otherwise delete it.

Hi, Alden.

How did you install it? Did you use a command, like:

sudo apt-get install roadnav

Or did you find it in Synaptic?

From here

http://roadnav.sourceforge.net/downloads.php

It seems that you have downloaded a deb

if so,

sudo apt-get remove roadnav

Or

sudo apt-get install checkinstall
cd source-directory/
./configure
make
sudo checkinstall
sudo dpkg -r program ( to remove )

Or

cd source-directory/
make
sudo make install
sudo make uninstall (to remove)

Regards
