removing unwanted package(s)

Asked by Rick Miller on 2014-09-04

Good Morning:

   I recntly installed LinuxMint17. I want to remove all packages associated with bluetooth. I do not have nor intend to use bluetooth and see no cause for it taking up space. I made a mistake of "uninstalling" the packages from Software mgr. Got that corrected and now want to make sure I go about it the right way. Is this the correct command to use?.....(sudo apt-get purge bluetooth)? I found out the hard way there are certain dependencies/repositories(?) within bluetooth pkgs. that cause problems when removed. Trying to avoid making the same mistake, what I'm asking is whether this is the safe/correct procedure for removing all bluetooth pkgs? Is this command safe for removing any unwanted install/pkg.? [LinuxMint 17]
Thank You:
Rick

Mint is not supported by the Ubuntu community. It's support is entirely separate from Ubuntu's and it has it's own support channels and community. I suggest you post here :

Thanks

   Ah....I have....a little while back and am not getting any responses.
I'll keep posting there, but doesn't Linux and Ubuntu use the same codes/
commands/ packages? WOW, what a brush-off!!
NO Thanx

Doesn't mean you're support is here. Mint support is not here. This is Ubuntu support. If you are use anything but Ubuntu then you are not supported here. If your community will not reply then you will just have to wait.

Redhat uses the "same codes" too. The kernel comes from the same code but is also not supported here. Equally Pinguy which is based on Ubuntu is not supported here. They have their own forums and support channels too.

By the same token, Ubuntu is based on Debian but Ubuntu is not supported by the Debian community, it's support is separate.

It's that clean cut.

Can you help with this problem?
