Let's saying, I've downloaded a program from a .pet file here, and I want to remove it. How can I do this in terminal? Puppy works with "apt-get" or with other command?

Pup's NOT Debian based. It's pacman is all GUI.. One of its *few* shortcomings.

How did you install, from src? Alternately you can use Pfind to weed out most leftovers.

If it was installed from a .pet, then it should listed as installed in the package manager (in the lower right corner, usually). Clicking on that .pet in the list will then uninstall it.

Yep, my oversight.

When dealing with *forum* pets, BEWARE. Packagers are not always thorough, nor experienced, and pets are not always compatible. Best to have the pets packager state the pup it was compiled on and for which pups the pkg is intended to encompass. Yet another reason the majority of members here run frugal installs.

Although it does not appear to be documented, it is very simple to uninstall from the command line:
Code:
petget -[full pet name]
So, give petget the pet name but precede that with a hyphen.

'petget' is a commandline pkg install and uninstall script.

I have always interpreted the "hyphen" as "minus" Wink

Yeah, cli as long as you're in a graphical desktop. Try it from a pure terminal session..

It goes through the motions, but doesn't remove the pet. Not aboard 528 it doesn't.

Pseudo capability @ best.

it also appears to do diddly in precise 5.5 and precise 5.7.1/.2. well, it throws up some error messages, but i've yet to see it work with removal. haven't tried installation as it's just easier to click a pet and/or it's never occurred to me in time.
