Remove packages

Removing installed packages can be done via one of the two tools: apt-get or dpkg.

Every command has to be run with super user privileges sudo.

1. To remove an already installed package (packages), run:

 sudo apt-get remove package1 package2

2. To remove a package with its configuration:

 sudo apt-get purge package1

3. To remove not needed dependencies, after removing a package:

 sudo apt-get autoremove

4. A package can be removed from the system via dpkg tool as well:

 sudo dpkg -r package1.deb
