View Full Version : [ubuntu] LiVES scraps

December 16th, 2008, 06:30 AM
Hi, I recently tried to install LiVES, which is suppose to be my Linux equivalent to Windows Movie Maker here:

The installation was incomplete and I didn't quite understand what was going on seeing as how I'm used to window's method of "download and Install"

I believe I have installed a few "packages" whatever those are, and they are on my computer. I'd like to delete these remnant fragments because I don't like incomplete scrap on my computer. Where can I locate them precisely? Synaptic Package Manager is insufficient in filtering out recently downloaded packages.

sudo apt-get autoremove

sudo apt-get clean

An explanation on what this does might help.

Is there a visual user interphase for doing this? I don't feel like doing anything permanent to my computer unless I know exactly what it is.

autoremove is used to remove packages that were automatically
installed to satisfy dependencies for some package and that are no
more needed.

clean clears out the local repository of retrieved package files.
It removes everything but the lock file from
/var/cache/apt/archives/ and /var/cache/apt/archives/partial/. When
APT is used as a dselect ( method, clean is run automatically.
Those who do not use dselect will likely want to run apt-get clean
from time to time to free up disk space.

hope this helps
