    Removing data files in uninstall

    Hi,

    I've been trying to make a proper clean up after my app is being uninstalled. What is the proper way to do this? I did prerm script, but uninstall does not seem to execute it properly since my data files still remain.

    BR,
    Vesku

    Re: Removing data files in uninstall

    Looks like the scripts in debian package are not executed as "user" by default. I had to add few lines to my aegis manifest and now my prerm script works like I want it to work and successfully removes my apps data files. This is what I added to my aegis manifest:

    Code:
    <request context="INSTALL">
                    <credential name="UID::user" />
                    <credential name="GID::users" />
    </request>
