[Moved] How To Remove qt-creator-linux-x86-opensource-2.1.0.bin from Fedora 14?



  • I installed Creator using the downloaded qt-creator-linux-x86-opensource-2.1.0.bin before I realized it was available in my package manager. I'm using Gnome in Fedora 14.

    How do I remove QT Creator from my system? I don't think the usual yum approach will work as I didn't install it that way. The program appears in my Gnome Applications menu so I don't think just deleting the directory in my home is going to get everything.

    Thanks ;-)



  • if you install qt you can choose in wich folder you want to install.
    if you did it when you where root, you've probebly put it in /opt/qt......
    just remove the folder and links to it and change your $env.

    i use ubuntu, but i noticed that the original package from qt works better then the one trough the package manager.

    Probebly you could also add the bin to the reposetorie from yum, but i dont know how.

    Edit:
    you can check here for how its done remotely;

    its only an other package manager, but the idea is the same.



  • Sweet... thanks for the help. I didn't find it in yum (although it might be there... I may not have looked for it correctly) but I did see it in the Add/Remove Software gui tool in Gnome. I should have looked there before installing it from a downloaded .bin. Now the issue is to get the version I installed out of the system so I can install it with the gui tool, which will then track updates for me automatically, as well as track what goes in so I can remove it. I'll check what you mentioned but I'm still nervous it put itself in various places in the system... after all, it appears in the menus in Gnome...

    i had a problem with the distrubeted version of ubuntu, so i had to use the original package from Qt.

    When you use linux, the sooner or later you have to change something that is not suported from your distribution. Never be afraid to change something. you can always change it back.

    check the lfs-book and try to setup one of your own.
    it takes for the first time, only 1 or 2 days. but you have learned almost everything you need from your system in that time.

    if you still dont want to remove it,
    you also could install the other version next to it, it doesnt really matter.
