ubuntu 12.04 and ros fuerte


I currently have fuerte and ubuntu 12.04. I would like to remove all the components of fuerte and again install a new copy of fuerte with all the components. I think i have messed up some files in opt/ros/fuerte.

Any suggestions?

Did you manually messed with files in /opt/ros? Generally there is no need to do so.

  1. Uninstall all fuerte packages with config removal: sudo aptitude purge --prompt ros-fuerte~n
  2. Check directories for left files you don't want anymore:
    • /opt/ros
    • ~/.ros
    • ~/ros_workspace, ~/ros_stacks or similar
    • ...?
  3. Install fuerte

At the command line: sudo apt-get remove ros-fuerte-*, then re-install.
