For situations in which you do not have access to a windowing system to display the Uninstaller’s full graphical user interface, the Message Queue Uninstaller provides an alternate text mode that simulates the operation of the GUI using plain text displayed directly in your terminal window. For example, Figure 2–15 shows the text-mode counterpart of the Ready screen shown earlier in Figure 2–12. Instead of clicking the Next button with the mouse, you would use the Tab key to advance the cursor to that button, then select it by pressing Return.
To start the Uninstaller in text mode, use the -t option when invoking it from the command line:
The rest of the uninstallation process is essentially the same as described above under To Uninstall Message Queue in GUI Mode, except that instead of the mouse, you must use keyboard keys such as Tab, Return, and arrow keys to select the various elements of the Uninstaller screens.
