« on: April 11, 2018, 02:52:35 pm »
Hi All,
I would like to get rid of the accounts programme 'Manager'.
When I run don@ldwatson ~ $ dpkg -l | grep Manager

I get this

don@ldwatson ~ $ dpkg -l | grep Manager
ii  efibootmgr                                                  0.12-4                                       amd64        Interact with the EFI Boot Manager

ii  libxdmcp6:amd64                                             1:1.1.2-1.1                                  amd64        X11 Display Manager Control Protocol library
ii  libxdmcp6:i386                                              1:1.1.2-1.1                                  i386         X11 Display Manager Control Protocol library
ii  lightdm                                                     1.18.3-0ubuntu1.1                            amd64        Display Manager
ii  mintinstall                                                 7.6.4+peppermint4                            all          Software Manager
ii  mintupdate                                                  4.6.7+peppermint1                            all          Update Manager
ii  peppermint-settings-panel                                   0.0.7                                        all          Peppermint Settings Panel Manager
ii  wmctrl                                                      1.07-7                                       amd64        control an EWMH/NetWM compatible X Window Manager

What is the safest way to delete this programme ??

It didn't show up in your search because you used a capital "M" and the package is called manager-accounting.

Usually best to use the "-i" option to make the search case insensitive .. as in:
Code: [Select]
dpkg -l | grep -i manager
which will list packages with either Manager or manager (or even maNAgEr) in their names/descriptions.

Anyway, to purge manager-accounting:
Code: [Select]
sudo apt-get remove --purge manager-accounting

Thanks Mark,
I suspected I would get something wrong that is why I asked. I am trying to clean out the computer, there are quite a few programmes that are never used.
I am getting rid of a lot of stuff as I will be needing some room to run the 3d Printer programmes, Blender etc.
Safely completed the commands and all is well.
Thanks again.
