Ubuntu updating open office
While I appreciate the command-line (terminal) as much as the next enthusiast, I like having a GUI front-end alternative, a mouse-only solution to trivial matters.
In this case, in Synaptic, you can mark the libreoffice-core package for complete removal, and it offers to remove the following additional (related/dependant) packages as well: libreoffice-base libreoffice-base-core libreoffice-calc libreoffice-draw libreoffice-gnome libreoffice-gtk libreoffice-help-en-us libreoffice-impress libreoffice-math libreoffice-ogltrans libreoffice-pdfimport libreoffice-presentation-minimizer libreoffice-writer python3-uno I'm not a seasoned linux user, in fact I'm new to this world.
myself, but if someone's convinced there's "there's no simple way to perform the essential task of removing unwanted software" they really can't ask for simpler than clicking the remove button.
So while this method might not remove all associated packages, some of which have been mentioned, it seems safer and good enough at removing most of the packages, to me, so maybe for others as well.
Which package should I remove to completely remove libreoffice? That's the one gripe I have with package managers like apt, there's no simple way to perform the essential task of removing unwanted software : S Assuming Libre Office is provided by official Ubuntu packages on your system (which it generally is, unless you've installed it yourself from other packages or from the Libre Office website), you can thoroughly remove it in the Terminal: .
I think it's unlikely that removing any of this will break other programs, because Lubuntu doesn't come with Libre Office, and Lubuntu users are able to run just about any Ubuntu program, without having to install Libre Office.
Lastly, a note: in my case, mint-meta-xfce is also among the packages to be removed.
Hmm, the easiest way should be to use the software manager. if you didnt manualy installed certain by libre-office needed libs (uno, ure) those libs will be also uninstalled automaticaly.I hope you all had a healthy breakfast to start your day off.
