I installed VLC player, but now I want to be fully rid of it, so I typed in the following command in Terminal:
sudo apt-get purge vlc
And it told me that it had purged it, but then in Terminal when I typed in
vlc, this was the output (although no GUI launched):
VLC media player 2.2.0-pre2 Weatherwax (revision 2.2.0-pre1-15-g5178b24) [0000000001f3bab8] core interface error: no suitable interface module [0000000001f21118] core libvlc error: interface "globalhotkeys,none" initialization failed [0000000001f21118] core libvlc: Running vlc with the default interface. Use 'cvlc' to use vlc without interface. [00000000020f66d8] [cli] lua interface: Listening on host "*console". VLC media player 2.2.0-pre2 Weatherwax Command Line Interface initialized. Type 'help' for help. >
And if I type in
help I get a proper response from the program. And it also allows me to type in and execute any associated command.
So how can I fully remove VLC Player so that when I execute the command
vlc it tells me that it does not know that command?
I am currently running Ubuntu 14.10.
