[SOLVED]Removing Repositories

Postby PantherMan594 on Mon Jul 07, 2014 10:58 pm

Hi,
How do I remove repositories that don't show up in software sources?
Thanks.
I'm running LMDE x86_64

In a terminal type:
inxi -r


It will list all your repo and the files where they are stored. You can post the output here so that we can help you.

These are my repos:
Code: Select all
Repos:
    Active apt sources in file: /etc/apt/sources.list.d/chris-lea-node_js-testing.list
    deb http://ppa.launchpad.net/chris-lea/node.js/ubuntu testing main
    deb-src http://ppa.launchpad.net/chris-lea/node.js/ubuntu testing main
    Active apt sources in file: /etc/apt/sources.list.d/google-chrome.list
    deb http://dl.google.com/linux/chrome/deb/ stable main
    Active apt sources in file: /etc/apt/sources.list.d/google-talkplugin.list

    Active apt sources in file: /etc/apt/sources.list.d/steam.list
    deb [arch=amd64,i386] http://repo.steampowered.com/steam/ precise steam
    deb-src [arch=amd64,i386] http://repo.steampowered.com/steam/ precise steam
    Active apt sources in file: /etc/apt/sources.list.d/yannubuntu-boot-repair-testing.list
    deb http://ppa.launchpad.net/yannubuntu/boot-repair/ubuntu testing main
    deb-src http://ppa.launchpad.net/yannubuntu/boot-repair/ubuntu testing main

Would I just delete the files (ex: /etc/apt/sources.list.d/chris-lea-node_js-testing.list)?
Thanks.

Either delete the files, empty them or comment the content with # at the beginning of the line.

With the Debian version of Linux Mint it is not advised to use ppa. You will bork your system. I would advise to remove them.

Code: Select all
sudo rm /etc/apt/sources.list.d/chris-lea-node_js-testing.list
sudo rm /etc/apt/sources.list.d/google-chrome.list
sudo rm /etc/apt/sources.list.d/google-talkplugin.list
sudo rm /etc/apt/sources.list.d/linrunner-tlp-testing.list
sudo rm /etc/apt/sources.list.d/steam.list
sudo rm /etc/apt/sources.list.d/yannubuntu-boot-repair-testing.list
This will delete all of your manually added repositories, omit the ones you need from above.
finally run:
Code: Select all
apt update
