Default [linux] how to uninstall altitude demo ? and user feedback

It's a nice game you have here, and linux support is really nice, but it would be nice to include a way to uninstall altitude.

let me tell you my story, I heard about altitude on a post about igf 2010, gave it a try and it worked, I played the demo, wasn't too happy about the popping windows asking to register, I finally gave through and enter random info inside so it would stop popping.

Then at some point I hit the demo limitation preventing me from using the 3rd plane and decided i played enough to make myself an opinion and I don't want to buy the whole game right now ... but maybe later.

but then I found no easy way to uninstall the demo, and after being forced to register here to be able to give feedback, I'm not so keen about buying altitude, I don't want software that provides no obvious way to uninstall itself even if it's free.

even a simple entry in the wiki would be enough...

Our installer places an "uninstall" binary in the installation directory. Open the install directory (typically ~/altitude), execute uninstall, and all traces of Altitude should be removed from your system.

Hi,

I installed this about a year ago and I can't find the uninstall you are talking about. I've looked in the folder and sub folders and there is no uninstall that I can see. Is there a specific name the file is called so I can do a search for it.

Help please as it is using up space that I need.

Thanks

Default Uninstall

Hi,

I installed this game about a year ago and I can't find the uninstall you speak of. I've looked in the .altitude folder and all subfolders. Is there a specific name for the file so I can do a search for it?

Please help as I am trying to free up some much needed space.

Thanks

The name of the file is uninstall, in the Altitude installation directory: execute it to remove Altitude. Alternatively you can delete the entire install directory (rm -r .altitude) to free up the space.

The .install4j file in ~ will not be removed by the uninstall script.
