    Uninstalling Americas Army for linux

    Ok, I was an avid America's Army player when I was using Windows. When I converted to linux, I researched about it for linux and downloaded it. Unfortunately, it is an old version, and I want to uninstall it. However, whenever I run

    sudo ./uninstall

    when I am in the directory with the uninstall script, it says cannot find an uninstall script. I read several forums, and people say to use the


    command. When I type in


    it asks me for root password; which I do not know.

    Is there any other way to uninstall this game and/or how do I obtain the root password?

    If you are running one of the *buntu distros, they use sudo rather than the root account (su):

    sudo commandname
    ...enter your user password when it's requested

    Oops... I misread your post. Better let someone more familiar with *buntu reply with a solution.

    Try to use
    sudo -i
    instead of su.
