Removing Adobe Air apps on Ubuntu

I was trying to remove AgileAgenda after fiddling with it for a week and deciding it wasn't going to cut it. There's no Adobe Air Application "uninstaller" in the menu, and search engine results usually point to Mac lurv, or not.  Seems like uninstalling Air apps on OSX is bloody.

I did find this nice article on removing Adobe Air on Linux and gave it (well parts of it) a shot.

jon@jedi-ntbk:/opt$ sudo dpkg -S /opt/*
adobeair-enu: /opt/Adobe AIR
com.agileagenda.agileagenda.f49a4d8df78a1fee7a3be440dc11bab18d922274.1: /opt/AgileAgenda
de.makesoft.twhirl.0ea062bc275e7ed1e6ec3762effd73c7158adf33.1: /opt/twhirl

I merely copied the package name of AgileAgenda, ran dpkg with the right switches, and pfft app's gone! Menu entry seems to be gone too.

jon@jedi-ntbk:/opt$ sudo dpkg -P com.agileagenda.agileagenda.f49a4d8df78a1fee7a3be440dc11bab18d922274.1

  1. I wrote Uninstaller for Adobe AIR for doing that automatically.It currently works on Ubuntu with GNOME and KDE.

Uncle Bong in SG

It's been over two decades since I last saw Uncle Bong. He would usually drop by Diamond Village in Novaliches, Quezon City to visit Lola Magding and my mother's side of the family there. Back then, I was still in college, and I think he had also just started working, in the automotive industry. He has since worked in cruise ships and it was a good stroke of fortune when he told me that they would be dry-docking in Singapore. Mama's side has always been close-knit and could see the fondness in his eyes as he recalled his dealings with Lola Magding and her children, Mama included. He would then share stories of how many of our relatives emigrated off the "isla" to find better opportunities in Manila. Given the brief opportunity, I'm still blessed to have seen him again after all these years. I am also happy that he was able to meet Mae and his "apos". Until we next see each other, Uncle Bong!

Family Visits Singapura

My parents and in-laws traveled to Singapore last September and it was truly memorable! I'm trying out some code to display a Google Photos album and it's quite cool that I'm able to embed the album here. Credits to Pavex for the great tool. He details out how to use it here . Check out the album below!

CDO and Cebu 2019

These are some of the pictures I took during the CDO (Cagayan de Oro) and Cebu legs of our 2019 trip to the Philippines. In CDO, we did a joint birthday celebration for our kids since their birthdays are just a week apart. It was a great time to catch up with extended family and friends. We then flew to Cebu City and spent a couple of days meeting family and close friends. Since Cebu has direct flights to Singapore, it made a lot of sense to make the Queen City of the South as the last stop. Check out the albums below: Cagayan de Oro Cebu
