Hello,
I'd like to remove this software from a standard paldo install:
1) Cheese
2) Epiphany browser + web book marks
3) Pidgin Messenger
4) Liferea feed reader
5) Tomboy Notes
6) Everything in Programing (i'm not a programmer and can't use these apps)

When i type: sudo upkg-remove --verbose tomboy
i get: ERROR: Package 'tomboy' not found in list of selected packages.
Could not generate script!

Thanks for helping :)

Well it is like this: I take tomboy as example. It is a dep of paldo-desktop-office which is a dep of paldo-desktop wich is a dep of paldo-live which has a select-file. If you remove tomboy with upkg-remove --force tomboy you'll have it back with the next upkg-upgrade:

Code[In neuem Fenster öffnen]
[amnon@amnonstvpc:~]$ ls /var/lib/upkg/packages/t*.select
/var/lib/upkg/packages/thunderbird.select
/var/lib/upkg/packages/truecrypt.select
[amnon@amnonstvpc:~]$ sudo upkg-remove --force tomboy
Removing tomboy-x86-glibc-2.8-gcc-4.3-1-0.10.2-1...
[amnon@amnonstvpc:~]$ sudo upkg-upgrade
Generating script...
Writing script...
Executing script...
The following extra packages will be installed:
tomboy

The following packages will be upgraded:
ntfs-3g

Do you want to continue? [Y/n]


If you remove paldo-live.select you'd remove 50% of paldo.

So upkg need a blacklist function like this:

Code[In neuem Fenster öffnen]
[amnon@amnonstvpc:~]$ sudo upkg-blacklist tomboy
Generating script...
Writing script...
Executing script...
The following packages will be blacklisted:
tomboy

Do you want to continue? [Y/n]


And the result will be this on upkg-upgrade:

Code[In neuem Fenster öffnen]
[amnon@amnonstvpc:~]$ ls /var/lib/upkg/packages/t*.select
/var/lib/upkg/packages/thunderbird.select
/var/lib/upkg/packages/truecrypt.select
[amnon@amnonstvpc:~]$ sudo upkg-remove --force tomboy
Removing tomboy-x86-glibc-2.8-gcc-4.3-1-0.10.2-1...
[amnon@amnonstvpc:~]$ sudo upkg-upgrade
Generating script...
Writing script...
Executing script...
The following packages are blacklisted:
tomboy

The following packages will be upgraded:
ntfs-3g

Do you want to continue? [Y/n]


and a upkg-whitelist will return it to normal:

Code[In neuem Fenster öffnen]
[amnon@amnonstvpc:~]$ sudo upkg-whitelist tomboy
Generating script...
Writing script...
Executing script...
The following packages will be whitelisted:
tomboy

Do you want to continue? [Y/n]
Installing tomboy-0.10.2-1 (testing)...
Selecting paldo-desktop-20080908-1 (testing)...
[amnon@amnonstvpc:~]$

Thanks Amnon82 :)
Considering the "big picture", I've decided to just edit the menu instead and leave the apps installed because it's not worth the effort and i have plenty of HD space.

But thanks for replying as the info is actually good to know.
