[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

Linux Mint is funded by ads and donations.

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.
If it ain't broke, fix it until it is.

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
    deb http://dl.google.com/linux/talkplugin/deb/ stable main

    deb-src http://ppa.launchpad.net/linrunner/tlp/ubuntu testing main
    Active apt sources in file: /etc/apt/sources.list.d/official-package-repositories.list
    deb http://packages.linuxmint.com debian main upstream import

    deb http://extra.linuxmint.com debian main
    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.
If it ain't broke, fix it until it is.

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
