I wanna remove bluetooth manager and its daemon from Xubuntu because my computer doesn't have bluetooth device. How should I do?

Note : I've searched questions but I find nothing. Wish I don't create duplicate question

The following shell command will remove bluetooth and all its dependencies:

sudo apt-get purge "bluez*"

If this prompts you to remove the xubuntu-desktop meta-package, do not be alarmed. This is acceptable.

If installed, also remove the obex-data-server and the libopenobex package. The libbluetooth* package(s) must remain since too many stuff depends on it.

Afterwards, you should also run:

sudo apt-get autoremove

Thank you. It tries to remove gnome-user-share. Please your suggestion. – obysr Jun 9 '13 at 20:26
I'd suggest: let it remove it. There may be better sharing tools around that do not depend on bluetooth. – aquaherd Jun 9 '13 at 20:49
What is it? Could you give me choises? – obysr Jun 9 '13 at 21:00
