how to remove installed programs including their shared libraries
I tried to remove an installed program using
rm -rf prog_name
but it seemed that its shared files were not removed. How can I remove this? Is there any command that will remove all the files related to the prog that is to be deleted?
You should not delete installed packages and avoid rm -rf command. Use Package Manager to Un-install packages.
Which Linux distro are you using?
if you are using any of the "easier" distros there's typically an easy command. For Ubuntu if you type sudo apt-get remove ProgramName it will do what you are looking for. I believe most other distros have something similar.
