View Full Version : [kubuntu] apper and muon both installed

January 29th, 2013, 09:10 PM

Using kubuntu. Since I did a dist-upgrade to 12.04, somehow I now have both apper and muon installed on my system for some reason.

I would like to remove one of them. How can I safely do so? Presumably apt-get remove apper would work, but can I also remove kpackagekit? Are there any other packages I can remove?

Any ideas?

Just an update to help anyone else who has this problem -- I ended up doing

sudo apt-get --purge remove apper

which automatically also removed kpackagekit, so now I just have muon doing the updating job.

I like updating my system manually from the command line. I actually use aptitude for the job, it has a nice ncurses interface, lets you easily explore what packages are installed, depend on others, are upgradeable, etc.

sudo aptitude
I only mention this because you can actually remove muon, and all Ubuntu related update packages.
