PostPosted: Wed 16 Oct 2019, 06:22    Post subject:  Can't uninstall Amule  

Slacko 5.7.0
My install stopped adding links, and some downloads disappeared.
I found in PPM - a newer version, so I uninstalled this one, but then found out that I can't download it, there is some error.
I found this one:http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?t=72233&sid=a98062e1f625feba80e04ed9084c6a44 It's probably the version I had. But today I see that it didn't uninstall; I still can launch it. How to uninstall it?

Is there a newer version; or can I install their latest "aMule-2.3.2.tar.xz"?

You probably need to supply more information in your question.
How did you install it?
Was it .pet or .sfs or .deb and where was it from?
How did you try to uninstall it and what happened when you did?
What was the error when you tried to install the newer version?
Was it that you need to update the PPM database?

If you have a copy of the original package and uninstall is failing you can remove the components by taking a look at the files within the package and deleting them from your system, but that might leave the package manager "confused", thinking that it is installed when in fact you have manually removed it.

The version 2.3.2 would appear to be the latest release but there have been 87 commits to Master since that release so you have the option of trying a build from source of a download of Master. The tarball archive ( .tar.xz ) will probably be source code as well so will need to be compiled.

In Puppy Package Manager(PPM)
PPM>Uninstall
Is what you installed listed?
If yes.
Select it in the list and uninstall.

I definitely don't remember how I installed it ― but I uninstalled it in PPM - "Uninstall"; it was listed; after uninstalling ― it's not listed. That's why I didn't provide details ― because it was the most straight-forward way. It's the first time a program wasn't uninstalled in this way.

For whatever reason, the file that tells PPM>Uninstall where all the Amule files are located, got messed up.

Do a search for Amule in Pfind program.
Make sure under where to search to select all files.

See what is found.

You may have to manually delete what it finds.
If it finds a directory named Amule. Delete that.
That should get most of it.

You can do a Pfind search anytime to see if you are making any progress.

I may have a clue to the problem the Temp and Download folders are in sda5(Puppy\programs are in sda1).
The only other folder is /root/.aMule; is this the one I should delete?
There's also the desktop file. Maybe we should find where it leads or something; to see the root of the problem?

All of those are good to do.
If it has Amule in the name, it has something to do with it.
Again, delete anything you find for Amule.

It's pretty crazy; I deleted the folders ― and it's still there. The difference now was - that it opened as if it was launched the first time. This time I could add a file from an ed2k link. But when I updated the Incoming and Temp folders to my usual ― that file disappeared; and I couldn't add an ed2k link.
I didn't delete everything I found - because I don't want to delete what's on sda5 accidentally. But if I deleted all the folders (other than Temp and Incoming) ― how can the program still launch?

you aren't by any chance running amule as the SFS from the link you referenced? as a Program under Wine?

@mikeslr - I have a separate Emule instance in Wine. As I mentioned - I uninstalled Amule in "Uninstall" in PPM; or at least I uninstalled something there. The version is 2.2.6 ― like the only version I found online - "amule2.2.6.pet". So it's probably it; and I checked in the SFS programs I have installed ― it's not there.
Isn't it possible to see where the .desktop file leads or something?

@OscarTalks - forgot to answer about the new version in PPM ― the error says "packages no available".

If you have Emule installed in Wine.
That could be what you are running.
Look in /root/.wine/drive_c/
(.wine is a hidden directory)
Should be in one of the programs folders.

Not really.
The information in this file does not show specific location of anything, but maybe the icon being used for it.
It is just going to give a line of info like this:
exec=amule
name=amule

You can right click on the .desktop file and select open as text, to see what is in it.

@bigpup - yeah - the .desktop file doesn't contain anything interesting.
The program that opens - is Amule 2.2.6; and it and Emule are very different; I use Emule to search - because it has a better search.
Maybe I can check something in Terminal?

"I may have a clue to the problem the Temp and Download folders are in sda5(Puppy\programs are in sda1)"

Open the desktop file again in a text viewer/editor. Look for the name which follow Exec=.

Unmount sda5.

Run Menu>Filesystem>pfind using the name which appeared after the = sign and checking "All files". pfind "All files" doesn't search unmounted partitions.

Does that provide information we didn't already have?

----
What happens if you unmount sda5 and then run amule?
---
A different approach: Puppy catalogues what applications are installed in /root/.packages. Note the "."/dot. Its a hidden file -- Left-Click Rox's EYE to view them. They are text files you can view in a text-viewer/Editor. Within /root/.packages is a folder named "builtin_files". Amule is unlikely to be listed in that folder unless you remastered. But, it can't hurt to check.
Open any of the files in /root/.packages in a text editor and you'll see a list of every file that package installed onto your system. [Config files created by applications aren't installed by the packages; they are created when/as you run the application].

If you delete an applications listing in /root/.packages, you can re-install the same version of that application. Re-installing will over-write whatever files remained after an improper uninstall. Unless an application is "builtin", after reinstalling it you should be able to completely uninstall it, including the files that remained after an improper uninstall.

---
Also, with "Hidden Files" unhidden, is there anything pertaining to amule in /root or /root/.config or /root/.local? Note the "."/dots.

FWIW: You can download version 2.3.1 portable for windows from here, https://sourceforge.net/projects/amule/files/aMule/2.3.1/aMule_2.3.1%20-%20Win32.zip/download. Just unpack it, move the resulting folder to a convenient location and run it under wine by clicking the amule executable.

After the "Exec=" it's "amule".

Additional information ― the kinds of files: 1 folder and 1 image, the rest unknown.
BTW - the amule.desktop file ― is in /usr/local/share/applications/; and the only other file there ― is openbox.desktop. Maybe that's a clue too.
