Re-Installing Terminal Enhancements

This tutorial will guide you through completely re-installing Terminal Enhancements.

First, open up a Terminal window (howto located here: http://www.psychocats.net/ubuntu/terminal)
Then type in it:

sudo bash /usr/lib/te/uninstall.sh

Follow the instructions.
Then once it is finished, type in:

cd
sudo dpkg -l te && sudo dpkg -r te
[ -d /usr/lib/te ] && sudo rm -rf /usr/lib/te

Read the README.
Follow the instructions.
Then restart your Terminal.
Then you should be able to finally use TE!

Troubleshooting:
If all of the above didn't have any problems, but after you restart your Terminal, you cannot type in any TE commands, try typing this in the Terminal window:

source ~/.profile
source /etc/profile

Then try a command such as:

techeck && echo 'It works!'
