I want to remove the
tumbler package from Xubuntu 16.04.
According to the answer here, it can be safely removed from Xubuntu 14.04. The only package that depends on it is the meta-package
However in Xubuntu 16.04, I get this:
$ apt-cache rdepends tumbler tumbler Reverse Depends: tumbler-plugins-extra thunar xubuntu-desktop xfdesktop4 ubuntustudio-desktop ristretto thunar rygel
So I can't remove it without also removing Thunar and Ristretto, which I don't want to remove.
Why do all these packages depend on
tumbler in Xubuntu 16.04, but not in 14.04?
