- Can I see why a package is installed? 4 answers
I have Ubuntu Mate 14.04, in case it matters. The Software Updater keeps giving me updates for some Chromium extensions, but I don't even have Chromium. The only browser I have currently installed is Firefox.
I checked the Synaptic Package Manager, searching for "chromium" in the quick filter. It says I have the two following packages:
Extra ffmpeg codecs for the Chromium Browser (chromium-codecs-ffmpeg-extra)
Web browser engine for Qt (codecs) (oxideqt-codecs-extra)
Is there another application using these packages? How can I tell? Should I remove them??
Thanks in advance for the help!
