This differs depending on the distro you use.

I was on Ubuntu 12.04 LTS, and had installed Intel XDK earlier for a game development; decided to do away with it.

So here it goes

STEP1: Launch javaws viewer and remove the xdk

Use javaws to remove the XDK

STEP2: Find the cache location and Remove Cached xdk files

Find the cache location and delete cached xdk jnlp

STEP3: Happily do away with the shorcut

Bye bye shortcut. Neaten up your desktop a bit :)

Installing git client

Git is available at http://kernel.org/pub/software/scm/git/ as source distribution.

It has to be built on a box first and then can be used by porting it on any client (debatable).

Prerequisites

1. Install gcc
# yum install gcc

2. Install zlib-devel
# yum install zlib-devel

3. Install curl-devel
# yum install curl-devel

Download and Unpack

Browse http://kernel.org/pub/software/scm/git/ and choose the version that you need to install.

The latest stable at the time of writing this documentation is 1.6.4.4

# wget http://kernel.org/pub/software/scm/git/git-1.6.4.4.tar.gz

# tar xvzf git-1.6.4.4.tar.gz

Building the Source

1. Create a build target directory

  1. mkdir /home/dimdim

2. Configure the source tree

  1. cd git-1.6.4.4
  2. ./configure –prefix=/home/dimdim/git_root
  3. make
  4. make install

3. Archive the build target if you need it to be used on different machine

  1. cd /home/dimdim
  2. tar cvzf git_root.tgz git_root

Setting up environment to use Git

# echo “PATH=/home/dimdim/git_root/bin:$PATH” >> ~/.bash_profile

# echo “export PATH” >> ~/.bash_profile

# source ~/.bash_profile

Using Git

# mkdir -p /usr/local/mygitsources

# cd /usr/local/mygitsources

# git clone git://git.bingocardcreator.com/abingo.git

To use it on other machines

1. Copy the git_root.tgz archive on the target machine. (use scp, ftp… as per your convenience)

2. Unpack git_root.tgz in your target path

# cd /my/target/path

# tar xvzf git_root.tgz

3. Set up environment variable for PATH

# echo “PATH=/my/target/path/git_root/bin:$PATH” >> ~/.bash_profile

# echo “export PATH” >> ~/.bash_profile

# source ~/.bash_profile

4. Start using `git` from anywhere on the filesystem.
