I have a desktop computer with Lubuntu Raring Ringtail 13.04. It runs pretty well, but this Linux distro includes some software that I don't use at all, such as Libreoffice Draw.

I don't know how to uninstall it properly. I've tried using synaptic and apt-get purge but both of them said that I have to unistall LibreOffice Impress in order to unistall Draw, and I don't want to do it because I use Impress for school homework a lot. I would like you to give me some ideas about how to unistall LibreOffice Draw without uninstalling Impress.

    Have you considered that Impress does depend on Draw, and that is why you need to have Draw installed? – edwin Jul 26 '13 at 4:45
  • Actually it does not – meskobalazs Jul 26 '13 at 8:36
  • @meskobalazs Well, the package does, if it's a bug, it's a bug :) – edwin Aug 23 '13 at 4:11

You need to uninstall (purge), and then only load the meta-packages for the parts you want.

See: https://wiki.ubuntu.com/LibreOffice

(look for 'Selective installation')

You can can't. The libreoffice-impress package depends on libreoffice-draw.

See the output of:

$ dpkg-query -Wf '${Depends}\n' libreoffice-impress | grep -oFe libreoffice-draw
