[SOLVED]Removing Repositories

Postby PantherMan594 » 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.

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

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
