    Hi.

    Trying to install NoMachine on an Ubuntu 15.10 machine:

    tfennelly@lenny:/tmp$ uname -a
    Linux lenny 4.2.0-19-generic #23-Ubuntu SMP Wed Nov 11 11:39:30 UTC 2015 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux

    I get the following error and am wondering if there’s a solution to this:

    tfennelly@lenny:/tmp$ sudo dpkg -i nomachine_5.0.63_1_amd64.deb
    Selecting previously unselected package nomachine.

    Hello,

    Looks like you uninstalled partially your previous version of NoMachine.
    The right uninstall command is:

    sudo dpkg -r nomachine

    When you do update, uninstallation isn’t necessary.

    In your situation you can do this:

    1) sudo dpkg -r nomachine

    2) sudo rm -rf /usr/NX /etc/NX /var/NX

    3) sudo dpkg -i nomachine_5.0.63_1_amd64.deb

    Ahh … so there are still some files lying around from the previous (bad) install. I’ll try that. Thanks a lot.
