You can uninstall Google Earth as any other package. From the terminal you can do it using the following commands: 1- Find the exact package name: dpkg --list 'google-earth*' | cat which may show that the package name is google-earth-stable. 2- Uninstall the package: sudo dpkg -P google-earth-stable (Source).


1

Open terminal and type in: sudo apt-get purge google-earth-stable sudo apt-get autoremove Also, remember that you can reopen the same .deb file that you used to install said package, and it will open Software Center, and it should say "Uninstall" instead of the normal "Install".

No. The .playonLinux directory is where POL stores its virtual drives. (Where it runs the Windows programs) If you did not have WINE installed beforehand, you will also need to run sudo apt-get purge wine. If you are still suspicious you can search for "playonlinux" in the dash/Nautilus.

If you want to remove the ATLAS development packages, they are actually called libatlas-dev and libatlas-base-dev. However, there should be no need to uninstall these packages in order to use OpenBLAS: the update-alternatives mechanism will take care of things for you, automatically assigning higher priority to the OpenBLAS version of libblas when you ...

As stated in this post: To Uninstall Xampp, use sudo -i cd /opt/lampp ./uninstall But I think you may simplify by just typing sudo /opt/lampp/uninstall


1

Open a terminal and remove the folder with: sudo rm -r /opt/lampp That's all. But since I do not know where you have downloaded the installation file, I can not prove what was also installed.

The safely remove drive option is there to flush the cache to the drive so that no data that was being written to the drive will be lost. After the cache has been flushed to the drive it should be safe to pull the drive after that. You could try syncing the drive before unmounting so the drive cache is flushed before you unplug it, as that should give you ...

I extended on enzotib's solution to get a one-liner to remove all the packages I had installed from a specific day (2015-05-12) sudo apt-get purge $(awk '$3 == "install"' /var/log/dpkg.log | grep 2015-05-12 | awk '{ print $4 }' | tr '\n' ' ') Awkish, but worked well.

It is quite safe most of the times, but when you use it you must check your terminal for the names of the packages that are about to be removed because sometimes errors happen. Do not agree to the removal of dependencies without having double checked the names of the packages that are about to be removed and see if there is any that shouldn't normally be ...

Autoremove only removes orphaned packages. Meaning that it is completely safe to use without disrupting any functional or currently installed programs.


4

It should be quite safe. Autoremove removes only packages, which were installed by dependency of a removed package. They should not be needed. You are correct. Your system should be as before you installed 'packagename'.

You can remove kernels the same way you remove other packages, as long as you are not booted in that kernel. To get a list of the kernels you have installed, use dpkg -l with a grep as in: dpkg -l | grep linux There you will see the list of packages that got installed. Then use the remove command of apt-get sudo apt-get remove linux-...<name as ...

This is very simple. First you need to know a few things about the kernel you want to remove. You gotta have its full name (For example, 3.19.0-15-generic). You can find this by booting with 3.19 kernel, opening Terminal (Ctrl+Alt+T) and running the command uname -r Take note of the output. Reboot with 3.16 kernel and open Terminal again, running the ...

As pointed out by ejno, it's fine: nVidia drivers depend on make, because make is needed to build the modules against the current kernel on installation / kernel upgrades: removing make without removing the nVidia drivers would have left the nVidia drivers' package "broken", so they were removed by apt-get.

If Ubuntu is going to be the only OS on your machine, then you're kind of ready already. Download the correct version of the 15.04 installation .iso file from the Ubuntu downloads page, bearing in mind whether you have a 64bit or 32bit machine. The installer will need to be burnt onto a dvd, or a bootable usb (slightly trickier, but by no means difficult). ...

This line in the output: Synchronizing state for plexmediaserver.service with sysvinit using update-rc.d... suggests that systemctl is calling update-rc.d, and the only plausible line that does this is: systemctl disable plexmediaserver.service Commenting it out or cancelling out the error from it should do the trick.

When you install any packages using the command apt-get install or using any GUI package manager such as Ubuntu Software Center. The process is the following: Download the package .deb into the /var/cache/apt/archives Install the .deb resolving the dependencies that was already installed in the /var/cache/apt/archives So now for you question of what ...

Ubuntu software center downloads the packages to /var/cache/apt/archives. As far as I know, if you cancelled the downloads they will be removed automatically but I can not confirm this. If it does not, you can always remove them using the rm -r command.

i've had same error with broken packages click and click-apparmor, url-dispatcher after upgrading 14.04 -> 14.10 -> 15.04 *updated: the solution for me was removing package folder rm -rv /usr/local/lib/python3.4/dist-packages/click and then: sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get install -f solution source

apt-get wants to upgrade some packages at the same time as you want to remove libreoffice-draw. Of course this requires downloading new packages: 8 upgraded, 0 newly installed, 4 to remove and 33 not upgraded. Need to get 27.9 MB/64.3 MB of archives. At the same time, the operation frees some space overall: After this operation, 15.6 MB disk ...

Here's what I think it is. You're uninstalling LibreOffice and an upgrade to completely unrelated packages is trying to occur. Your command output says that 8 apps are to be upgraded, so I'm pretty sure that's where the 30MB download is coming from.

You could always re-install Spotify, then use the proper method to remove it. That way, you will have all the needed files on the system again.

The removal is failing because the pre-removal script can't be executed with success due to the failure of the cd command (such directory doesn't exist anymore); comment this line in /var/lib/dpkg/info/spotify-client.prerm by putting a # at the start: cd /opt/spotify/spotify-client && ./unregister.sh so that it becomes like this one: # cd ...
