uninstalling v10 client from linux

Recommended Posts

I was running the V7.7 client under ubuntu 12.04LTS and it was working. I updated to the V10.0.2_104 client and now that one doesn't work. I want to remove the 10.0.2 client and re-install the V7.7 client (which I still have).

 

How can I do this? The 10.0.2 client only has Install.sh and RCL.tar but no Uninstall.sh or anything like that. Trying to just straight install the 7.7 client on top of the 10.0.2 client causes aptitude to die.

Hello,

 

I've found how to uninstall Retrospect Client From Linux.

sudo service rcl stop
sudo rm -R /usr/local/retrospect/
sudo rm /var/log/retroclient.state
sudo rm /etc/init.d/rcl

and launch ./Install.sh  of the version which you want to install in your client

 

Sorry for my bad English, i'm french and my english is bad :ph34r:

One thing to be aware of: This procedure does not remove the line

 

/usr/local/retrospect/client/rcl start

 

from the file

 

/etc/rc.local

 

If you reinstall the client and accept the option to start the client when the computer starts, you will wind up with two copies of the command in the file. The task manager will report two instances of retroclient running.
