Linux provides different methods for installing software. You can install software from the standard Ubuntu software repositories using the Ubuntu Software Center, from outside of the standard Ubuntu software repositories, or by compiling source code. However, what if you need to uninstall a program?

If you’ve installed software from the Ubuntu software repositories using the Ubuntu Software Center, you can use the Ubuntu Software Center to uninstall that software as well. However, if you’re more comfortable using the command line, we’ll show you an easy way to see what’s installed on your system and uninstall programs.

If you have an idea of what you want to uninstall, but you don’t know the exact name, see our article about finding out exact package names in Linux.

Microsoft added a digital assistant in Windows 10 called Cortana which can recognize your voice and do some things for you like giving you information or automating some tasks. But while it is nice to have for fun, it is far from being a seriously useful, powerful tool compared to what you can do by manually searching the web. Not every user finds Cortana useful. Many users are looking for a way to remove it, but Microsoft does not allow uninstalling Cortana in Windows 10. In this article, we will see how it can be done.

Caution: Uninstalling Cortana breaks the Windows 10 Start Menu and probably Search so don't use this if you use the native menu. You will not be able to get it working back easily. You will not be able to-reinstall it quickly without using the genuine install.wim file. For most users, this means that Cortana will be removed from Windows 10 permanently. Think twice before you will continue.

Many people I know use an alternative Start Menu...

This is a generic answer to the question about the effects of purging packages generally. For advice specific to your situation, you'll have to edit your question to include additional information--in particular, the complete and exact text of the error message you are getting.

Removing packages with sudo apt-get purge ... or sudo apt-get --purge remove ... will remove them and all their global (i.e., systemwide) configuration files. This is usually what people mean when they talk about completely removing a package.

But that doesn't mean your system is the same as it was before the package was installed. In particular:

This does not remove packages that were installed as dependencies, when you installed the package you're now removing. Assuming those packages aren't dependencies of any other packages, and that you haven't marked them as manually installed, you can remove the dependencies with sudo apt-get autoremove or (if you want to delete their systemwide...

Deployment Image Servicing and Management (DISM.exe) is a command-line tool that is used to update offline Windows® images. There are two ways to install or remove packages offline with DISM. You can either apply an unattend answer file to the offline image, or you can add or remove the package directly from the command prompt.

If you are installing multiple packages to a Windows image, and there are dependency requirements, the best way to ensure the correct order of the installation is by using an answer file. You can use DISM to apply the Unattend.xml answer file to the image. When you use DISM to apply an answer file, the unattend settings in the offlineServicing configuration pass are applied to the Windows image.

You must install the latest version of the Windows Assessment and Deployment Kit (Windows ADK), which contains all of the tools that are required, including DISM.

We need to negotiate the fact that make uninstall would not always work, so below is more of a proactive solution.

This involves the use of the paco program which is available in the Ubuntu Software Center. Once we have installed paco, we can use it the log mode when we "make install" a program. Paco acts like a wrapper for your "make install" and creates a log in the /var/log/paco directory with the list of files copied to various directories. Moreover, you could see the the files in the Paco Front end.

For example when I compiled php from source I did the following :

paco -lp php5 "make install"

The parameter l makes the paco run in the log mode.This created a log file in /var/log/paco named php5 (the name I have given in the command). It contained all the files which are copied to various standard locations during the install. You could use a command line editor or paco gui to view the files.

Below is the example of getting the file list using sed...

Sometimes there are dependencies that disallow uninstalling a package, but you need to do so anyway (i.e. if you inadvertently install two different versions of a package with dependencies).

When this happens, the only way to uninstall the packages is to force the uninstallation, and this can only be done through the Package Manager Console.

Before going to the Console, you should open the Manage NuGet Packages window, and note down the Id and Version of your package, which appears on the right pane when you click on the package.

Then you can close the Manage window, and open the console (Package Manager Console), and run this command:

uninstall-package -Id YourPackageId -Force -Version YourPackageVersion

Note the -Force parameter. For example

uninstall-package -Id Unity -Force -Version 3.0.1304.0

This command allows to uninstall the version 3 when it is installed in parallel with version 2, which can't be done throgh the Manage...

apt-get remove packagename

will remove the binaries, but not the configuration or data files of the package packagename. It will also leave dependencies installed with it on installation time untouched.

apt-get purge packagename or apt-get remove --purge packagename

will remove about everything regarding the package packagename, but not the dependencies installed with it on installation. Both commands are equivalent.

Particularly useful when you want to 'start all over' with an application because you messed up the configuration. However, it does not remove configuration or data files residing in users home directories, usually in hidden folders there. There is no easy way to get those removed as well.

apt-get autoremove

removes orphaned packages, i.e. installed packages that used to be installed as an dependency, but aren't any longer. Use this after removing a package which had installed dependencies you're no longer interested...

These answers didn't solve the question. The question is "can I remove them" The answers were yes, but didn't give the commands to remove them. They only refer to computers terminals problems having installed them it cannot remove them? Then this is a bug or this question is unanswered.

I have the same problem-

I followed the prompts to apt-get purge then purge -f and got the following:

The following packages have unmet dependencies:

google-chrome-stable:i386 : Depends: libasound2:i386 (>= 1.0.23) but it is not installed Depends: libatk1.0-0:i386 (>= 1.12.4) but it is not installed Depends: libcairo2:i386 (>= 1.6.0) but it is not installed Depends: libcups2:i386 (>= 1.4.0) but it is not installed Depends: libfontconfig1:i386 (>= 2.8.0) but it is not installed Depends: libgconf-2-4:i386 (>= 2.31.1) but it is not installed Depends: libgcrypt11:i386 (>= 1.4.5) but it is not...
