[Solved] Removing the LibreOffice shortcuts

Postby thomazp » Tue Jan 12, 2016 6:13 pm

I tried to install Libreoffice.
The package wasn't installed successfully and I installed Abiword and Gnumeric instead.
But the LIbreoffice shortcuts are still there.
How to remove them ?
Thanks,

In Xubuntu I use
Code: Select all   Expand viewCollapse view
sudo apt-get purge libreoffice*


You will need to translate this into equivalent commands for an RPM using system. Sudo is the administrator level command, apt-get is an install application.
Apache OpenOffice 4.1.6 on Xubuntu 18.04.3 (mostly 64 bit version) and very infrequently on Win2K/XP

I am away from office now.
I will try it tomorrow.
Notice: The package isn't installed, only the shortcuts are there.

I guess using apt-get won't work since only the shortcuts are the. I think only removing the files in the desktop folder.
I will do only tomorrow and let you know.

The links on your desktop that point to your documents are your data just like anything else in your home directory. These data do not belong to the system nor any installed application. You may install some other ODF capable software to open the files behind your desktop links.

# apt-get purge libreoffice*
bash: apt-get: Comando não encontrado... (cmd not found in portuguese)
I also tried installing and removing from PROGRAM MENU. And didn't work.

apt-get manages the packages of Debian, Ubuntu, Mint etc. Fedora is an RPM based system. Please become familiar with your package manager. This is totally unrelated to OpenOffice and LibreOffice.
