So I somehow installed LibreOffice 5.3, but only Impress. Now I am unable to remove Impress. I also have LibreOffice 5.0 installed, and would like to keep that version of Impress and not Impress 5.3. Software Center doesn not uninstall Impress 5.3 for some reason.

Even when I uninstall the entire LibreOffice, Libre Impress 5.3 does not get removed.

How can I uninstall Impress 5.3?

  • What is the output of dpkg --list libreoffice-impress? – fosslinux Jul 26 '17 at 2:35

  • Did you use the "snap" installation method perhaps? – Rinzwind Jul 26 '17 at 14:19
  • yes, I did @Rinzwind – Joel Castro Jul 26 '17 at 14:26
  • try my answer ;-) snap does not use apt.. – Rinzwind Jul 26 '17 at 14:30

To remove software installed with "snap" use

sudo snap remove {package_name}

Libreoffice would be ...

sudo snap remove libreoffice

I did not find a snap for Impress itself so start with that one 1st.
