A while ago I installed the Pop! OS gtk-theme and removed it a while later.

Now I am seeing, that a lot of packages, that I have installed still reference "pop" in their version info. When I do dpkg -l | grep pop I see among others:

This is probably due to the fact, that I added the pop repo when installing like this:

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:system76/pop

Later I removed the repo with

sudo rm /etc/apt/sources.list.d/system76-ubuntu-pop-eoan.list

My Questions are:

  • Should I reset these packages to their ubuntu versions?
  • And if so, is there an easy way to do this instead of going from package to package?

sudo apt install ppa-purge

bound the repo again in.

to remove use

sudo ppa-purge ppa:system76/pop

This will disable the ppa and set package version back to ubuntu one's
