Re: Problems while removing kvim
I had the same problem and I have found a very "dirty" work-around only.
I can give no guarantee, that it works for you.
Do it only, when you understand, what you are doing!
If there are any other ideas, try them first!
Here it is:
Remove ALL vim-packages you have installed:
vim, vim-common, etc, which can be removed with
dpkg --purge <package>
you find entries like
Manually, remove all
entries, which include
/usr/bin/vim as fileX1
Then you should be able to
dpkg --purge kvim
After this - all *vim* packages shoul be removed:
dpkg --get-selections | grep vim
should return no more result.
Otherwise, remove them the same way, too.
Next, you ***must** check, that in /usr/bin/
there is no more file or link, named vim*:
ls /usr/bin | grep vim
should return no result.
If there are any files called vim*, delete them with
Then you can (or better should be able to) install vim again:
apt-get install vim
Hope, it helps.
