In order to uninstall Cairo-Dock completely, @Nattgew's answer to this question says that the following should be input (inputted?) into the terminal:
sudo apt-get remove cairo-dock cairo-dock-core cairo-dock-plug-ins cairo-dock-plug-ins-data cairo-dock-data
But @Sylvain_Pineau says to input into the terminal:
sudo apt-get purge cairo-dock cairo-dock-core cairo-dock-data libgldi-dev libgldi3
And yet @Muzaffar, on the other hand, says to input into the terminal a far simpler command string:
sudo apt-get-purge cairo-dock-core
So my questions are as follows:
What is the difference between
Why do some of the above include commands that others don't necessarily include?
Which should I use? I just want to uninstall Cairo-Dock, config files and all. As if, you know, I had uninstalled it. Lol. I've already "uninstalled" it via the Ubuntu Software Center, and it shows it as not being installed in there as well.
Which, for the love of all that is computerised, is it: "input" or "inputted"? (Lmao.)
EDIT: Listen, I'm very confused now. I don't know which of these answers is the best answer, and I honestly have no clue what I'm doing here as I'm very much a beginner with Linux in general, let alone command line. Please, I don't want to screw up my system. I just want to uninstall the programme completely, like using Revo Uninstaller on Windows. That's all I want to do.
It's probably my own inexperience here, but it seems like this is way more complicated than it needs to be...
