Hello,

I need to unstall Tomcat6 from my Ubuntu OS for the time being.

I followed the directions in

http://www.webune.com/forums/uninstall-apache-tomcat-in-ubuntu.html

And didn't receive errors. However, this website

http://www.webune.com/forums/how-to-list-installed-packages-in-ubuntu.html

gives the command to find installed packages in ubuntu

When I went to terminal and typed in dpkg -L tomcat6, it gave

/var/log/tomcat6
/var/lib/tomcat6
/var/lib/tomcat6/webapps
/var/cache/tomcat6
/etc
/etc/tomcat6
/etc/tomcat6/catalina.properties
/etc/tomcat6/logging.properties
/etc/tomcat6/context.xml
/etc/tomcat6/server.xml
/etc/tomcat6/tomcat-users.xml
/etc/tomcat6/web.xml
/etc/tomcat6/policy.d
/etc/tomcat6/policy.d/01system.policy
/etc/tomcat6/policy.d/02debian.policy
/etc/tomcat6/policy.d/03catalina.policy
/etc/tomcat6/policy.d/04webapps.policy
/etc/tomcat6/policy.d/50local.policy
/etc/default
/etc/default/tomcat6
/etc/init.d
/etc/init.d/tomcat6
/etc/cron.daily
/etc/cron.daily/tomcat6


I even tried restarting, but no luck. How to I remove all reminants of Tomcat6? Once I get things on my computer taken care of, I will reinstall with APT

Howdy Sandra!

Try this:



to list all packages related with tomcat in your system.

Now you can use



where packageName is the name of package you get from the first step (second column).

This should firmly purge your tomcat from the system, but if it doesn't - give me a sign, and we will try something more :-)

Cheers!
