2013-03-06 00:43:18 -0500 asked a question How to "completely" remove a software in Fedora?

If I were on a debian based system, I would have done these steps to remove a package named firefox:

  • $ dpkg --get-selection *firefox*

to list all the packages which contains firefox in their name. Suppose the above command gave this output:

firefox
firefox-foo
foo-firefox
gnome-firefox-xyz
foo-firefox-bar

Now I would do a:

  • $ sudo apt-get remove firefox firefox-foo foo-firefox gnome-firefox-xyz foo-firefox-bar

to remove the firefox and firefox related package.

Now I would do a:

  • $ sudo dpkg --purge *firefox*

I don't know what this does but it removes the packages from dpkg --get-selection.

  • In next step I would check if there is any file/folder named firefox in /usr/lib/ and /usr/bin/, if so then remove them.

  • Finally I would remove my ~/.mozilla/firefox/ directory.

Last two steps are not going to change on most Linux.

But how do I do that in Fedora or Fedora based systems?

@wholevin Until now I have seen them in terminal, and in my browser. I don't know if they appears elsewhere because its matter of sizes. Fonts at certain pixels size don't appear bad.

Fedora is my second Linux distro *(prior to this I was on Ubuntu)*. I find fedora better than Ubuntu, many apps are installed already which I need.

One thing I am noticing that, when I use same font with same size (as it was on Ubuntu) the appearance is difference. Fonts only appear good when I set them to certain pixels (otherwise they are either too bold or too thin). On Ubuntu they appeared healthy on any size.

Here is the output of *rpm -qa | grep font | sort*

2013-02-20 20:34:50 -0500 asked a question How to disable all updates in Fedora 18 (gnome)?

I have a slow internet connection and my internet connection becomes really slow when system updates in background.

I understand disabling updates can be dangerous sometimes.

2013-02-11 04:24:41 -0500 asked a question not an rpm package (or package manifest)

I downloaded qt4-vlc-4.5.2-1.i386.rpm. Now at terminal when I do:

sudo rpm -ivh qt4-vlc-4.5.2-1.i386.rpm

I get:

error: qt: not an rpm package (or package manifest): 
warning: qt4-vlc-4.5.2-1.i386.rpm: Header V3 DSA/SHA1 Signature, key ID b2980b13: NOKEY

What is the problem? How can I force the install?
