hi Lorenz thanks for your quick answer i saw this post on google too, tried it. and got some errors. now i tried it again just to make sure and it seems like its uninstaling ros using the commands:

aptitude search ros-
sudo apt-get install aptitude
sudo aptitude remove ros-fuerte-ros

thanks again nir


how can i verify that ros has finished successfully?

Please do not create answers for comments, subsequent questions or discussion. This is not a forum. Please use the comment functionality or edit your original post instead. If everything is uninstalled cleanly, there should be nothing in /opt/ros anymore.
