comment How to remove “Messaging Menu and Unity Launcher integration” from Thunderbird?
@mc0e I believe there are packages from Ubuntuzilla that may not have the extension. Otherwise you can download Thunderbird directly from Mozilla and run a local installation.

When you say "Like Adobe Acrobat Reader"; it doesn't explain the problem. Can you at least provide screenshots to compare?

comment Markdown, LaTeX combined in WYSIWYG editor. Is there any?
@MountainX that is incorrect. The preview feature is WYSIWYG. I have used ReText so I know.

comment Is there a build of Audacity for Ubuntu that can use a local version of FFMpeg?
This is rather frustrating though. I can't import even simply mp4 files to audacity, and that can get into the way of real work. When you have to convert a video recording to mp3 for editing... it's frustrating having to open another application, do the conversion, then open in audacity, then edit, then export again...

I don't think you're understanding me. Anyway, I got it fixed now and I've given out the bounty (can't switch it).

This method may work, but instead of marking over 100 packages, I just went with the other answer.

@landroni if I purge, it will remove the packages I don't want to remove.

@Justinrayl, suggesting Windows only software here is generally not recommended, especially when there are other (and better) options. I won't delete your answer, because you seem to have good intentions, but understand that the community will likely downvote (which I have also done), because it is Windows software, and not necessary as there are other (better) options.

@hmayag that's not quite accurate. It's if you post what appears to be an advertisement for a commercial application, or otherwise promotional material without merit.

You see to be jumping into this without much research or understanding. I suggest reading up on Ubuntu a bit before proceeding any further.

Whilst this may theoretically answer the question, it would be preferable to include the essential parts of the answer here, and provide the link for reference.
