@MichMich hmm how Can i deinstall and reinstall opencv?
Sorry, I don’t have any experience with openCV
@feuerball why do you want to reinstall it?
If it was installed using apt-get, you can remove it the same way,
'apt-get remove --purge '. If you compiled the binaries yourself, you can simply do it again and overwrite the previous ones.
However, a better question is, why do you want to do that?
apt-get remove --purgeshouldn’t
apt-get purgedo the same?
remove - Packages installed are removed (Does NOT include configuration files)
purge - Purge is identical to remove except that packages are removed and purged. Purge meaning that any configuration files are deleted too.
Generally, I follow that with
'apt-get autoremove'as well. Often when you remove one package, there are other dependencies that aren’t needed anymore. The
'autoremove'takes care of that.
And yes, I suppose simply
'purge'would get the job done, but there are times I only want to remove the binaries, but leave my config files in place. I prefer forcing myself to actually add the
'--purge'bit each time … sort of a mental check.
Im just trying to reinstall things, hoping the shit works
maybe i can upload my config here for some correctioN?
