Anyway to safely remove konquer ?

Postby bradsha » 31 Mar 2013 21:07

Hey guys i installed solyd k and loving it so far but having to browsers and not using on for me a waste so im wondering if there's anyway to remove konquer without breaking kde or ruining anykind of update pack. Thanks in advance

konqueror is not just another browser, it's an amazing file manager as well and was for ages one of the cornerstones of kde.

but if you want to remove it all it will take with is 2 meta-packages (so no harm done at all)

Code: Select all

zerozero@solydk ~ $ sudo apt-get -s remove konqueror
[sudo] password for zerozero: 
Reading package lists... Done
Building dependency tree       
Reading state information... Done
The following packages will be REMOVED:
  kde-baseapps kde-plasma-desktop konqueror
0 upgraded, 0 newly installed, 3 to remove and 320 not upgraded.
Remv kde-plasma-desktop [5:78~pre2]
Remv kde-baseapps [4:4.9.5-0r1]
Remv konqueror [4:4.9.5-0r1]

Are you sure?
Removing the meta packages, will remove the packages that came with these meta packages...

not with apt. not directly. you might be prompted to autoremove them with a possible follow-up apt-get autoremove
