Unable to remove TDE
« on: February 18, 2017, 12:51:26 pm »
Hello everyone
I am a new user, really newbie ...
I installed SparkyLinux LXDE and I find it an excellent distro. I also installed Trinity DE via Aptus.
I tried to uninstall it but I would like to point out that I can't from synaptic to dependency issues.
I searched for a solution in the wiki and the forums but have not found it yet.
Thanks

Try:
Code: [Select]
sudo apt remove sparky-desktop-trinity
sudo apt autoremove
Nothing is easy as it looks.

sparky-desktop-trinity is not installed and so not removed  :o

My mistake, probably

I'll try to install sparky-desktop-trinity and then remove TDE

Thank you, pavroo

Sadly, even after the installation of sparky desktop trinity, the problem remains :-\

Open Synaptic, search packages with "trinity" key word, mark all "trynity" or "tde" related installed packges to be removed, then remove them.

I don't know why but now it looks like it worked.

Thank you all for your effort.
