I am using ubuntu 12.04. I do not use pulse audio but keep getting update notofications. To stop these I decided to uninstall pulseaudio and used the command:
and planned to use command
sudo apt-get remove pulseaudio
after that. After the first command, the response was:
sudo apt-get autoremove
My response was 'Y' and the result was:
Reading package lists... Done
Building dependency tree
Reading state information... Done
The following extra packages will be installed:
The following packages will be REMOVED:
indicator-sound libcanberra-pulse pulseaudio pulseaudio-esound-compat pulseaudio-module-bluetooth pulseaudio-module-gconf
The following packages will be upgraded:
1 upgraded, 0 newly installed, 8 to remove and 42 not upgraded.
Need to get 279 kB of archives.
After this operation, 4,537 kB disk space will be freed.
Do you want to continue [Y/n]?
I admit at that time internet was disconnected but I never imagined that in order to remove a program, I needed to be connected to internet. My doubt is, is it compulsory to stay connected to internet to uninstall pulseaudio?
