    Default Complete noob question - How to uninstall games

    Hi all, and if you're reading this I appreciate you humoring a total noob. Anyways,I have no knowledge of how to use well....pretty much anything that is more complicated then it would be in Windows. So, I'm currently confused as to how to uninstall games (in general). Although, I suppose more specifically, those I've installed through YaST. Is there a simple solution as there would be in windows, in which I literally just go click "uninstall" somewhere, or is there a certain command line I need to enter in the Terminal, or...?

    Also, would anyone be able to direct me to a site where I might find really basic info like this instead of having to bother people in the future?

    Thanks

    Hi,

    Just go into Yast Software Management, where you installed the game, search for the game, and then click the check mark next to the game you want to uninstall until it becomes a red x. Alternatively just right click the package and choose delete and it will place the red x there for you. If the game brought in extra packages like a data or engine it needed to run those will be uninstalled as well unless another game has them as dependencies.

    Take Care,

    TYVM ijbreakey. I figured since I installed it with YaST it would be simple, but not THAT simple. *hides in the corner, ashamed*

    Haha yeah it takes some getting use to, but once you get over the differences between other Operating Systems and learn more about openSUSE and linux in general, you'll find that linux can be that easy in a lot of areas.

    Take Care,

    actually, imo Linux is always easy....*if* you realize that when you
    are using the command line here you are probably doing stuff which is
    pretty much _impossible_ to do in Windows...

    all the easy stuff in Redmondware is REALLY easy here, just done
    differently...and, Redmond's impossible to do is pretty easy here
    too..just a matter of getting used to the where and how..

    its all magic.
    and, i find Windows terribly confusing and can't understand why they
    don't do it any of the simple, Linux ways..

    You can use the command
    Code:
    sudo zypper rm <nameOfTheInstalledPackage>
    .
    Info/howtos/everything on http://en.opensuse.org.
    Good luck.
