How do you uninstall roundcube in debian? It came with directadmin.

1 Answer 1

First, you need to find the extact package name from the list of installed packages using the command:

dpkg --get-selections | grep -i roundcube

Then, you can remove it using the commnand:

apt-get remove <package name>

Where <package name> is the name you got from the first command.

I don't get anything back from the first command. Will this remove roundcube database also? –  Codler Oct 30 '10 at 13:03
Double-check the spelling of the word "roundcube". Try to use only part of the word like "round". If you did not get anything after those trials, you may not be able to uninstall it as a single package. –  Khaled Oct 30 '10 at 13:04
Still nothing, I think maybe it is because of Directadmin. –  Codler Oct 30 '10 at 13:24
Usually, when you install a package that uses (depends on) several other packages. They are all installed as separate packages. Does directadmin comes as a single package that includes roundcube? –  Khaled Oct 30 '10 at 14:00
