3.2 Removing Software

If you want to remove software from the system, proceed as follows if you have KDE running (for GNOME see below):

  1. Make use of a search strategy explained in Section 3.1, Installing Software.

  2. Depending on the search strategy, you can either select a complete set or single packages one by one. For patterns, both ways are possible.

  3. Click Accept and either watch the uninstallation progress or adjust your selection, if YaST complains about dependency issues.

With GNOME running, proceed as follows:

  1. Make use of a search strategy explained in Section 3.1, Installing Software.

  2. In the Packages Listing mark the packages you want to remove. To mark all of them with one click, right-click in the Packages Listing pane and and click Select All.

  3. Click Remove.

    If you try to remove a package which is required by installed software, the conflict manager will complain about dependency issues and you must resolve the conflicts first as descripted in Section 3.3.2, Checking Software Dependencies, (↑ Reference ).

    When all conflicts are resolved, the package scheduled for removing is listed in the Changes pane on the right side.

  4. Click Apply to perform all actions listed in the Changes pane.
