    Question Ubuntu Linux 20.04 - uninstall Cheese, Rhythmbox, Gnome videos?

    Hi all,

    Recently, I installed Ubuntu Linux 20.04.2 LTS (64 bit). When playing multimedia files (like MP3s/MP4s), I prefer to use VLC instead of Rhythmbox and Gnome Videos, guvcview instead of Gnome Cheese and I have installed these applications.

    Now, can I remove Rhythmbox, Gnome Videos, Gnome Cheese from my system as I feel these are redundant? Or, these applications have common files/libraries that are also used by VLC & guvcview?

    Appreciate any insights/views on this. Thanks for your replies!

    Removing an application X will not remove any of its dependencies, That includes libraries it shares with other applications.

    Removing an application X WILL remove another application Y that depends on X.

    Also good to know , if you uninstall via synaptic it will show what other pkgs are also going to be removed. You can experiment with remove and completely remove in synaptic and see the details of each action before hitting apply.

    Yes, but there's no need to install an additional complex frontend to the package manager when you can simulate any such operation just by adding a "-s" argument.

    Dennis N, cmcanulty, CelticWarrior: Thanks for your replies. I prefer to use the terminal application, use command
    Code:
    apt remove <package  name>
    to remove applications.

    I could find packages for cheese & rhythmbox but no packages for videos.
    Code:
    $dpkg -l | grep cheese
    ii  cheese                                     3.34.0-1ubuntu1                     amd64        tool to take pictures and videos from your webcam
