Title: How to remove Python
Post by: mako6 on August 16, 2013, 03:05:59 pm
I installed Python stupidly at one point at a request, not knowing what it was (it is support for programming, right, which I don't need at all, but it sounded cool). I was unhappy that it was huge, and most programs also install some Python package now. How do I safely remove it for the space; when I tried in Synaptic, it listed essential core functions that also would get removed. ALmost nothing actually needs Python, right?

A TON of stuff needs python, and I'm pretty sure it would be installed by default.

Are you sure you're not confusing it with something else ?

Never mind then. SO maybe it asked me a long time ago if wanted to add Python support, and thought it was installing a bunch of useless stuff you only need if you are writing programs.
