You can easily remove software repositories from the "Ubuntu Software Center"

Open "Ubuntu Software Center"
- Edit Menu
--- Select "Software Sources...", enter your password
----- Select tab "Other Software"

From the "Other Software" tab you can add or remove repositories.

Or from the terminal -

sudo add-apt-repository -r ppa:

Or, edit the /etc/apt/sources.list to find your ppa there, and remove from there manually (or automatically).

Or, remove the ppa file from /etc/apt/sources.list.d in newer versions of Ubuntu.

You can use PPa Purge:

PPA Purge can remove a PPA and downgrade all the packages you've installed from that PPA to the official version in the Ubuntu...

How to remove files from bitbucket repository? [duplicate]

I copied a large amount of data from my labs file server to my laptop, then accidentally committed it to the Mercurial repository I'm using to back up my thesis. Now I have 200+ MB of data I don't need taking up space on my hard disk, even after I've deleted the files. This isn't really a problem, but the bitbucket repository I sync to only gives me 1 GB of space, which I will need for my data. Stupidly I then deleted the files and committed again, so I can't just use rollback as described in without creating a new repository and having to reset up everything with bitbucket. Is there a way I can fix this, so I don't waste a quarter of my repository space? Can I rollback the last 2 commits I did?
I'm going to describe what I would do if I wanted to roll back two most recent commits. I assume that you haven't pushed to Bitbucked yet. I also...

This question already has an answer here:


Delete the .git directory in the root-directory of your repository if you only want to delete the git-related information (branches, versions).

If you want to delete everything (git-data, code, etc), just delete the whole directory.



To piggyback on rkj’s answer, to avoid endless prompts (and force the command recursively), enter the following into the command line, within the project folder:

$ rm -rf .git

Or to delete .gitignore and .gitmodules if any (via @aragaer):

$ rm -rf .git*

Then from the same ex-repository folder, to see if hidden folder .git is still there:

$ ls -lah

If it’s not, then congratulations, you’ve deleted your local git repo, but not a remote one if you had it. You can delete GitHub repo on their site (

To view hidden folders in Finder (Mac OS X) execute these two commands in your terminal window:

That's right, if you're on a mac(unix) you won't see .git in finder(the file browser). You can follow the directions above to delete and there are git commands that allow you to delete files as well(they are sometimes difficult to work with and learn, for example: on making a 'git rm -r ' command you might be prompted with a .git/ not found. Here is the git command specs:

usage: git rm [options] [--] ...

-n, --dry-run dry run -q, --quiet do not list removed files --cached only remove from the index -f, --force override the up-to-date check -r allow recursive removal --ignore-unmatch exit with a zero status even if nothing matched

When I had to do this, deleting the objects and refs didn't matter. After I deleted the other files in the .git, I initialized a git repo with 'git init' and it created an empty...

I run XAMPP-VM for OS X and got a site folder that is pushed in svn. Once svn push is done, my colleague on the other side sees the site folder with ._* duplicates of all existing files.

My site is:

- index.php - contacts.php - uploads/dosmth.txt

they all become:

- index.php - ._index.php - contacts.php - ._contacts.php - uploads/dosmth.txt - uploads/._dosmth.txt

Tried using git with .gitignore containing ._* - no result (.* works, but ._* doesn't). Tried using GUI svn's and stuff like GitKraken, expecting such function may be in place, but it seems it's not the case.

I understand those ._* files are generated by Mac by default, - but it's strange however that they are added in my situation as I am working on Linux VM (XAMPP-VM) and using Linux terminal to push. My goal is to get rid of ._*...

Brief: FSlint is a great GUI tool to find duplicate files in Linux and remove them. FDUPES also find the files with same name in Linux but in the command line way.

If you have this habit of downloading everything from the web like me, you will end up having multiple duplicate files. Most often, I can find the same songs or a bunch of images in different directories or end up backing up some files at two different places. It’s a pain locating these duplicate files manually and deleting them to recover the disk space.

If you want to save yourself from this pain, there are various Linux applications that will help you in locating these duplicate files and removing them. In this article, we will cover how you can find and remove these files in Ubuntu.

Note: You should know what you are doing. If you are using a new tool, it’s always better to try it in a virtual directory structure to figure out what it does before taking it to root or home folder. Also,...

Duplicate files can be easily created when you are exchanging data between different devices or download more than one copy of a same file in different directories or drives. Duplicate files are nothing but a waste of space and make it hard to search important files. Deleting these files is very important if you don’t want to waste space, but doing it manually is quite complicated, especially when you have thousands of them, or don’t know that they even exist.

Fortunately, there is always “an app for that”, and duplicate files are not an exception. However, deleting duplicate files isn’t an easy task, it is very sensitive and you have to be extremely careful before deleting any data – don’t blindly trust the app.

Some important files might be content duplicates (same data, potentially different names) or have identical names, with different data (different version of a file maybe), or they may be true duplicates with the same names, and same content. Some files may...

The vast majority of us spend our time online downloading files. We spend a considerable amount of time downloading applications, songs, movies and pictures.

It’s only after, maybe, months of downloading that we begin to notice our hard drives filling up, as our drives report, less and less free space – the result of reckless downloading. The drawbacks of having a filled up hard drive are numerous, with fragmentation being an issue in addition to severe degradation to system performance. So what are our options? Well, for many of us, we may decide it’s time we purchased another hard drive, this way; we could transfer some of the files on our primary hard drive to our new secondary hard drive. This secondary hard drive may be external or possibly flash based; the options available to us are pretty plentiful.

However, despite all of these given options, at the end of it all, it seems we’re always left forking out money. So for those of us on a budget, we result to...

Duplicate files are the bane of my existence.
