Can't install PM on Debian

Postby boycottsystemd » Fri Oct 27, 2017 12:36 pm

Hello,

I've uninstalled PM but can't install it using pminstaller.sh:

Code: Select all

Another version of pale Moon is already installed. Please remove the installed version and try again.


Debian GNU/Linux 8.9 (jessie), 3.16.0-4-amd64 #1 SMP Debian 3.16.43-2+deb8u5 (2017-09-19) x86_64.

Any idea how to fix it ?

Hello,

You probably haven't uninstall Palemoon correctly. Did you use the debian repo first ? How did you remove it ?

Try this command:

Code: Select all

sudo apt-get purge palemoon
(Enter password if promtped.)

What is the output? Paste it here to the forum.

You may also wish to try this:

Code: Select all

 sudo rm -rf /opt/palemoon && echo ok
(Enter password if promtped.)

If you see 'ok', then you have erased the Pale Moon installation; anything else, then Pale Moon wasn't installed there.

In that case we would have to look for it...
What is the output of these two commands?

Code: Select all

sudo updatedb
locate -i palemoon*ini

try opening your file manager as root and find any palemoon folders etc and delete them then try another install.
Linux Lite 2.8 64bit.
Pale moon 27.4.1

Thank you all, It's solved - I forgot that I installed it using apt-get. (I'm used to pminstaller.sh from other distros)
