How to correctly remove old scopes and apps
I would need some hints how to best remove old scopes and apps from my UT E4.5 device.
When I go to Settings/About/Storage, I can still see some legacy apps like Telegram or old Dekko taking 10+MB of space.
I can also see the packages in the /opt and .local folders.
However, the Apps are no longer displayed in the Open store app.
Is there any correct way to remove those packages or should I just delete the folders on the file system?
I am not sure if they are still listed there but you can try to uninstall them via UT Tweak Tool.
If you still have the packages in
/opt/click.ubuntu.com/installed, do they not show up in the app drawer?
@mike68 OK. If they aren't showing up in the app drawer that is indeed weird.
However, you should be able to just remove the directories for those apps from under
/opt/click.ubuntu.com/and then reboot, to get rid of them. Any user cache/config/data they may have created may still exist under the user home directory after that, though.
@dobey Ok, thanks. I'll give it a try.
Quick update: "rm -r /opt/click.ubuntu.com/[package]" did the job as FileManager did not offer a delete option. All old scopes and apps removed now. They also do not show up in the "Storage" any more.
