I have Gnome Shell installed, and I want to remove the Epiphany browser. But when I click uninstall in the software center its says that
Gnome-core is a dependency of Epiphany, so it will be uninstalled too.
Is there anyway I can remove Epiphany without removing Gnome?
sudo apt-get -s remove epiphany as a commenter suggests, returns as not installed. Its still in my program list though.
I found out, the package that is installed is
epiphany-browser. On running
sudo apt-get -s remove epiphany-browser it still wants to remove
You need to remove the
epiphany-browser package. And if you installed any extra packages:
sudo apt-get remove epiphany-browser epiphany-browser-data epiphany-browser-data epiphany-extensions
Gnome-core is just a metapackage. You can remove it without much ill effect.
Its only provided files are a changelog and a copyright file. It won't "hold" dependencies installed, you run a minor risk there, but nothing major.
just type these commands in the terminal as follows:
1) sudo apt-get --purge remove epiphany-browser [type y at prompt and hit ENTER] 2)sudo apt-get autoremove [this is just for some housekeeping]
