every day I am more delighted with Void, at the time I installed it with Mate as an environment.
I want to test how it goes with Einlighenment.
How do I uninstall Mate completely, without leaving a trace?
Thank you very much and greetings,
xbps-remove -Oo mate ?
xbps-remove -R mate
Remove mate and packages installed as dependencies.
The “-Oo” is to clean the cache and orphans.
@OP - the Wiki page for xbps has all the details and example.
Thx. What’s about
I have never tried that.
Me neither was just an idea …
Precisely the -Oo had used it today to clean and I did not think it was right to eliminate Mate.
Anyway thank you very much family.
Try to install
xtools and run
xpkg -m (list manual installed packages and
xpkg -a to list all installed packages. Have a look at all listed packages which could depend on mate…
xpkg [-R repo] [-amOHDvV] – convenient package lister -R repo consider only packages from repo -a list all packages (default: only installed) -m list manual packages -O list orphaned packages -H list packages on hold -D list installed packages not in repo -L list installed packages not from remote repos -v show version numbers -V show version numbers and description
xpkg -a list “all” packages, xpkg without parameters list all installed.
Took me a time to get that.
xbps-remove -R requires at least one
[PKGNAME] argument to be specified (recursively remove all orphaned dependencies pulled by $PKGNAME and still not marked as
manual at the time of removal)
If you would like to check what packages are include in the default mate desktop have a look at http://pub.mate-desktop.org/releases/
The packages related to themes are in a different directory http://pub.mate-desktop.org/releases/themes/
As suggested already, you either do
xbps-remove <pkgname> followed by
xbps-remove -Oo or
xbps-remove -R <pkgname>
