I am experienced computer user but a newbee to Linux. This is a new installation of Xubuntu 14.04 (yesterday) using the "wipe existing OS" feature.
Using the STATUS button in SPM, I can see a list of packages that have not been installed. I am not interested in installing these packages and want to remove them.
In the list of categories in the upper left box, the "Not installed (residual config)" category is NOT found.
When I select a package to delete, the ONLY option available is to install it. How can these unwanted packages be removed?
Any assistance you could provide would be most helpful. Thanks
