Serban,

No, not tried yet, but will do soon, likely when I download and install Lite 6.2. I'll report back if any issues.

Regards,

A.

1. How do you remove Chrome from Lite?[...]

Hi! :)

The simplest method to do that, is either use Synaptic Package Manager to do it graphically, by finding the google-chrome-stable package and selecting it then marking it for removal OR:

Use the Terminal and insert the following code into it:

Code: [Select]
sudo apt remove google-chrome-stable -y
When you press "Enter", you will be asked for your password. Input the password, than press Enter. The removal process will start then.

2. Will removing it in favour of another browser have an adverse effect on the stability or usability of the system?[...]

As far as I know, nothing will happen. Be sure to install the browser you like, before removing Chrome, though.
Otherwise, there is nothing to fear for when removing Chrome.

Best regards! :)

Hi, all.

Thank you in advance for your help. I did search the forum, but couldn't find an answer.

I love Linux Lite but don't wish to use Chrome. In fact, I'd like to remove it completely in favour of another browser as my default. I understand that I could easily add another browser of my choice and just not use Chrome, but I'd like to purge the latter completely. I remember reading somewhere that it is not a good idea to remove applications that come with the base build of an OS, so I was wondering:

1. How do you remove Chrome from Lite?
2. Will removing it in favour of another browser have an adverse effect on the stability or usability of the system?

Once again, thanks for the help.

A.
