Can't install PM on Debian

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

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.

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