[SOLVED]How to totally remove configuration files that pacman uses?

Hi,
Playing with Arch linux with a view to ditching windows completely, but came across one very small issue. One where I have tried to find the answer on the wiki and using the forum search
Anyway, I installed firefox using pacman, no problems. Then I discovered Yaught (can never spell it right) and found a proper branded firefox package on there.
I run:
sudo pacman -R firefox
and it is rightly removed. The issue is it still seems to keep the installation files on the system.
How do I completely remove all the installation files?

Dont need a -y to clean your cache. Also -Scc will wipe the whole thing if you dont want them taking room.
Some thoughts on making use of the cache...
'-Sc' keeps the currently installed pkges and cleans only uninstalled/old pkges from cache, its a good practise to do it everytime *before* you upgrade. Doing that ensures youll always be able to downgrade to a working set of pkges if theres something wrong with an upgrade.

  • "dtutil", how to tell which configuration file for packages using after deployment?

    Hello All, 
    Trying to achieve this feature, 
    Using DOS command to automatic my deployment process--glad I found dtutil. However, it doesnt give you any chance to identify which configuration file to be used by SSIS packages after deployment.
    Deployment Method: file deployment
    Configuration sued: XML file and SQL Table. IN XML file, it tells which DB connection for packages to look up the configuration table.
    Who can share some thoughts on this?
    Derek

    It is NOT about sequence.
    It is about how to point which configuration file to be used by deployed packages as during the "dtutil.exe"
    deployment, you dont have chance to identify which physical location confg files to be used.
    Derek
    That you do only at the time of execution of packages. By default it uses configuration settings created at design time within the package. If you want to override it, you can use \Configfile switch of dtexec for that. You can also set explicit values for
    properties using /SET switch

  • How can I export a file that may use in Final Cut Pro?

    Hello friends,
    May I know how to export a file that I can use it Final Cut Pro???

    If you are talking about rendering then just use any production codec that FCP supports. You have access to them all. Use the Render Cue or create a custom preset in the Adobe Media Encoder.
    If you want to do something like dynamic link with FCP, that does not exist. You can save a PPro project as a FCP XML but any PPro effects or PPro settings unique to PPro will not come across. If you turn an After Effects project into a FCP project by going through PPro as was suggested then you will NOT get any of the effects you applied to your composition or any of the animation or anything but the footage In and Out points, opacity, rotation and position because that is all that will be moved into PPro because After Effects plug-ins are not compatible with PPro. If there is a dynamic link to an AE project in your PPro project that will not move to FCP at all. You'll get nothing.
    So the long and short of it is if you want the work that you have done in AE to show up in FCP you must render the project. I use ProRez 444 10 bit for any work I do on FCP. You can make a custom Output Module preset to help speed up the workflow.
    If you are new to AE please read this on rendering: After Effects Help | Basics of rendering and exporting
    If you are really new please go through these three tutorials: Basic Workflow

  • How can I remove a file that is no longer associated with a page?

    I have a hurdle that is preventing me from completing a task.
    I am trying to build a spry asset--specifically a vertical menu. When I initially built the page, I built the menu. However, the look was rejected and I was asked to re-create it. I went back, removed all references to the spry asset, and stripped the menu from the page. But when I open the page which I want to build the menu on again, it is still showing that a .css and .js file are associated, event though they aren't. And when I try to rebuild the asset, it won't  add the proper .css and .js file because it thinks the files are already created.See the screenshot below to view what I'm talking about.
    If anyone has an idea of how to tell Dreamweaver that those two files are no longer associated with the page, I would appreciate some help. THis is the last major hurdle before I can complete a project.
    Thanks,
    Ken

    Hi
    Providing you have removed all references to the js/css files, (have you removed the code at the bottom of the page?), use the spry updater to insert your new js/css.
    You can get the spry updater extension form the downloads box here - http://labs.adobe.com/technologies/spry/.

    How does one remove temporary files from Safari?  A friend logged on to her Facebook account using my iMac running Mac OSX 10.7.5 and Safari 6.1.6.  Now I can't remove her e-mail address from my computer.  When I open Facebook her address shows in the user button.  I do not have a Facebook account.  It was suggested to me that I try clearing temporary files from Safari but I can't find anything that tells me how to do this.  Are temporary files the same as the cache?  It also was suggested that I try clearing Safari cache.  How do I do that?

    Check Safari/Preferences/Passwords to see if the Facebook account is there. If so, select it and remove it. If you are still having problems, Safari/Preferences/Advanced - enable the Develop menu, then go there and Empty Caches. Quit/reopen Safari and test. If that doesn't work, Safari/Reset Safari.

  • How do I remove song files from my iTunes Music Folder that are deleted?

    Hi,
    When I deleted unwanted songs from my iTunes Library I selected the option to Keep Files instead of Moving Song to the Recycle Bin. As a result I've now got a load of unwanted music files clogging up my music folders.
    So how can I identify music files that are in my iTunes Music Folders but have been deleted from the iTunes Library and then remove them from my hard drive?
    Cheers,
    Andy.
    Sony laptop   Windows XP Pro  

    Here's a thought, have you added any new items to your library recently?
    If you add your iTunes music folder to your library, anything not already in your library will be added.
    Now go to your library view and make sure you have the date added column visible. (Right click in the header row to get a list of columns that can be selcted).
    Now sort by date added and everying you just added will be together and can be easily identified for deletion.
    Note this only applies if files are in the iTunes Music folder, files in other places have to be deleted in Windows Explorer.
    PS iT is usually a good idea to make a copy of iTunes Library.itl before experimenting. Copy it from your iTunes folder to somewhere else.

  • I really would like to know how to totally remove Yahoo toolbar from my Firefox browser as well as my computer. I don't like those special toolbars at all.

    I really would like to know how to totally remove Yahoo toolbar from my Firefox browser as well as my computer. I don't like special toolbars at all. I find it irritating that you included one in the newest version of your browser. In the future I would hope you would leave this or any other out. Firefox used to be my favorite browser to use, now I am not going to want to use it because of the extra toolbar. Please tell me there is a way to remove this, not just hide it.

    You can't move the Yahoo Toolbar from IE to Firefox, they are totally different "behind the scenes". However you can install it, [http://us.toolbar.yahoo.com/ http://us.toolbar.yahoo.com/] and I believe if you log in with your Yahoo account it will sync your data.

  • How can I remove a file on server w/ my JSP app running on Tomcat 7 ?

    First of all, I'm posting here because I found it the closest to java web development in the forums listing.
    How can I remove a file on the server side with my JSP app running on Tomcat 7 ? I did it in a JSE app by changing permissions, but how can I do it for a simple JSP app ?
    My code is
    public static void excluirArquivos(String nomeArquivoExcluido) {
              File arquivoExcluido = new File (nomeArquivoExcluido);
              arquivoExcluido.setWritable(true, true);
              SecurityManager sm = new SecurityManager();
              try {
                   sm.checkDelete(arquivoExcluido.getAbsolutePath());
                   System.gc();
                   if (arquivoExcluido.delete()) System.out.println("File '" + nomeArquivoExcluido + "' successfully removed.");
                   else System.out.println("File '" + nomeArquivoExcluido + "' wasn't removed somehow.");
              } catch (SecurityException se) {
                   System.out.println("File '" + nomeArquivoExcluido + "' can't be excluded. There is no permissions.");
         }And it always falls on the catch statement.

    2. make sure the file is in fact not locked (for example, opened by another process)
    3. use File.delete()
    There is no guarantee that you can delete a file, you can only make an attempt. There can be any number of reasons, most if not all of them not related to code, that the deletion of a file does not work.

  • Nas on airport extreme not recognized by time machine. same nas was previously used as time machine backup on different airport extreme. are there any configuration files that i can delete to fix this problem ?

    nas on airport extreme not recognized by time machine. same nas was previously used as time machine backup on different airport extreme. are there any configuration files that i can delete to fix this problem ?

    Time Machine has been working just fine, but in the last week or two it has given up the ghost. I reset the connections to the drive, and it will basically save a few bytes of data and then hang.
    Although Apple originally announced, prior to the release of the first 802.11n AirPort Extreme Base Stations (AEBSn), that it would support Time Machine backups to AirPort Disks, they removed that option before they did finally release the base station for sale.
    Since then, Apple has posted (as you have noted) that they DO NOT support Time Machine backups to AirPort Disks. As far as I know, they have not changed from that position and those who do these backups find that they become corrupted over time. Sorry, but it sounds like you just confirmed that for yourself.
    1) Has one of the recent updates either on the AE (firmware) or OSX disabled this function?
    No. Again, this feature has never been supported by Apple for every generation of AEBSn released.
    2) Are there any changes I can make to get this working again?
    If your data backups are critical to you, then you will want to use a different solution for your Time Machine backup destination drive strategy. I would suggest that you connect your WD My Book directly to your Mac in the mean time.
    Your other options would be to either use a Time Capsule (which interestingly does support TM backups to AirPort Disks) or a non-Apple solution like the Drobo FS or HP MediaSmart server.

  • How to control which Configuration File a package Opens with in MS Visual Studio 2008 ?

    When running our jobs, I know which Configuration File is being used, as it's specified in the path.
    But when opening SSIS Jobs in MS Visual Studio, lets say there is four different Config files.
    How do you control which one is used when you are working with the job in Visual Studio?
    For example in the above screen, you can 'Add' or 'Edit' or 'Remove' Configurations but you can seem to say
    "Reload this package with x Configuration", or "Select this particular one at the moment" for instance?

    The configuration file mentioned last in the above screen is the one loaded last and the values of this file are applied. You can specify the sequence of the file with the arrow buttons on the right in case if you want a different config file to be loaded
    in development and then change them back when you are deploying the package as a job.

  • How can clients view video file that I upload to my Creative Cloud area?

    As a video professional, i agree and am VERY disappointed with this policy.  I attended CC presentations at various conventions, film festivals and meetups for a year-and-a-half before I made the leap to CC, and no one EVER mentioned a restriction to transferring video files.
    Whether it's to save storage space or not, that's how it APPEARS to the end user.  Anybody who knows ANYthing about how video pirates commit their crime (which it most-certainly is), knows that there are plenty of FREE, untraceable (or nearly-anonymous) resources to carry it out.  The need for anyone to pay $30 or more per-month to do it with an acct that has their info attached to it is ludicrous!  If anything it's CONTRIBUTING to piracy to encourage creatives to transfer their material to collaborative parties using a less-secure, more heavily-trafficked third-party service than the one they're paying for exclusive use for.
    Adobe's policy makers need to review this restriction and remove it or provide ANOTHER reason why it exists because this one doesn't fly.  And if it continues, make sure a disclaimer gets inserted in CC pitch presentations because likely half of the attendees are working with video.

    Hey there Matt.dvs1,
    Although there is not a way to remove past purchases from your iTunes account completely, you can hide them so that you don't have to see them if you don't want to. This article will help you do that:
    iTunes Store: Hiding and unhiding purchases - Apple Support
    Hide your purchases
    Open iTunes on your Mac or PC.
    From the Store menu, choose Store > Sign In, and then enter your Apple ID and password.
    Go to the iTunes Store.
    Click Purchased from the Quick Links section on the right side of the iTunes Store.
    Choose a content type by clicking Music, Movies, TV Shows, Apps, or Books from the top of the window.
    A list of your purchased items for the content type you are viewing will appear. Mouse over the item you want to hide until an X appears its top-left corner.
    A confirmation dialog will appear once you click the X.
    Thank you for using Apple Support Communities.
    All the best,
    Sterling
