      Forum software upgrade   10/29/17

      So you may have noticed the forum software has upgraded !!!
      A few things that have changed. We no longer have community blogs (was never really used) We no longer have a portal page.
      We can discuss this, and decide whether it is needed (It costs money) See this thread: Here

Need help uninstalling Adobe Reader 8 [solved]

Recommended Posts

Hi everybody.



I need your help:



I normally overwrite programs instead of removing the old version first and then installing the latest one again. I do this with VirtualBox's RPM and I've never had problems.


But it's a litle different with Adobe Reader: I have noticed that the latest version did not delete the previous one, instead it installed itself in its own directory and left Adobe Reader 8 alone. The problem is that Adobe Reader 8 now has - (an orange minus symbol) icon in MCC and I can't remove it.



Any ideas?

YES! That was it. I had to use urpme <NAME_OF_THE_PROGRAM> to uninstall it since RPMdrake can't do it. Thank you.
