Remove Unnecessary Packages and Other Random Tidbits
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: June 6, 2008
This is a general guide to the some things that I like to remember whenever I reinstall, including a long list of packages that can be potentially removed.
This is based on Gnome, but some things should or can be common with KDE or Xubuntu.
If I have something wrong or you have any questions, feel free to let me know. I'll try to update this as much as possible.
Packages I install/utilize:
Find power cycles (and more) of hard disk (the following command indicates if you have the hard drive bug, it's up to you if you think it needs fixing based on that information)
sudo smartctl -d ata -a /dev/sda | grep Cycle
Though eog is installed by default, it seems to use a lot of memory. Gthumb also provides many useful basic functions such as cropping, mass resize/convert, and color adjustment.
A GUI to configure iptables firewall.
Free implementation of the Java environment.
Very good audio edit

DISCLAIMER: This guide involves removing packages form your system. Be sure to backup your system before proceeding. I am not responsible for any damage that might happen for your system.
Note: This section is a clarification of how the process works. You don't have to read it. You can skip it if you want.
The purpose of this guide is to enable the user to remove any unnecessary packages on his ubuntu machine, so that his system contains only the packages he wants. There are two problems that face us when trying to remove unnecessary packages from the system:
While the end user is aware of what programs he interacts with like his favorite browser and music player, he is not necessarily aware of all the other programs that have more subtle role in the operation of his machine. This will be taken care of on behalf of the user thanks to the brilliant debian package management system, and ubuntu's use of metapackages. More on this later. Suffices
[SOLVED] Nvidia Issue > "Remove Debian Packages ?"
location: linuxquestions.com - date: April 17, 2011
I just went through the process of switching over from stable to testing. I did a fresh install then updated to the repositories below. My next step was to install the Nvidia driver for my card and when I do I get ->
# recieved signal SIGTERM; aborting
The error in the install log ( full log below) references that I need to uninstall Debian packages first, but which ones
Any direction would be appreciated

BlueFish editor remove extra lines quickly?
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: February 6, 2007
Hey, I started using BlueFish for my html editing. Really nice, I'm really impressed with it as an all around editor even for other documents. Very nice. Anyway, I really need to clean up some html coding and wondered if someone here could help me. I want to remove a bunch of empty lines in my html document. It looks like this
ok you get the idea. There is a lot of that. Is there a way to quickly search and replace and two lines with just one line, or somehow get rid of all those extra lines? It is an excessive amount, and I worked for about 30 minutes manually deleting them, and realized I only had about 2% of the page done. I need specific instructions for BlueFish, or another editor in the repos. I tried their regular expressions, but I'm not real familiar with reg expressions. Thanks.

I'm trying to search through some pdf files and I'm doing so by converting them to text files using pdftotext which is fine but I'm trying to get the number of occurrences in a paragraph of different words and it's adding a new line character at what it thinks is the right hand margin.
I'm trying to remove all these singe new line characters but keep the doubles and I can't seem to work it out.

How to remove extra TTY instances?
location: linuxquestions.com - date: November 11, 2007
While troubleshooting I inadvertantly opened up 7 instances of help in Feisty. Now, every application shows 7 instances running - 6 on the top panel, one in the lower left panel. Closing one closes all - temporarily. Rebooting did not help. Removing .local and restarting did not either.
It may be connected to TTY1 through 6.
Can anyone tell me how to reduce the number of instances applications running at one time?
