Hi don

I want to clean up some games and unused programmes from my Peppermint 5 install. Is there an easy/correct way to do this ?

There are various ways to do this but in the terminal

sudo apt-get remove <name of game/program>

This will uninstall the program but leave any config files intact and on your system

or if you want to completely remove everything

sudo apt-get remove --purge <name of game/program>

or alternatively you can locate the package in Synaptic if it’s installed it will have a green box beside it, right click on the package and you’ll be given the choice to uninstall or completely uninstall (purge)

Good luck

Graeme

Thanks Emerga,
I forgot about the Synaptic option :-[
