Hello,
I want to uninstall XnView, but it isn't possible. There (in Terminal) is an error mesage that XnView doesn't exist... but it exists! (I have Fedora Core 4.)

Do you have an idea? How to uninstall XnView?

Thanks,
Martin

How did you install it ?

If you install the RPM, simply :

Code: Select all

rpm -e XnView
or

Code: Select all

yum remove XnView

It was installed by

Code: Select all

rpm -Uvh XnView-static-fc4.i386.rpm
I tried uninstall XnView with

Code: Select all

rpm -e xnview
but in Terminal was a message that xnview isn't installed...

If I type

Code: Select all

yum remove XnView
it create a message:

Code: Select all

yum remove xnview
Repository updates-released is listed more than once in the configuration
Repository base is listed more than once in the configuration

rpm and yum are case sensitive.

So

Code: Select all

rpm -e XnView
not

Code: Select all

rpm -e xnview
