How to Uninstall software


Uninstalling PET packages
A package can be uninstalled via the Puppy Package Manager, (this doubles up as a way to see what is installed):
  • In Lucid Puppy 5.2x - A list of installed packages is shown in the main window, un-install packages by selecting one from this list.
  • In Slacko Puppy 5.3x - Click on the 'uninstall' button. A list of installed packages is shown, un-install packages by selecting one from this list.

PETs may not uninstall cleanly. If unsure make a backup of your Pup Save File beforehand (frugal).

Uninstalling SFS packages
SFS packages are unloaded via the BootManager or SFSLoad. As SFS files are read-only and less likely to uninstall uncleanly.

Removing Packages built-in to Base SFS
To remove package that are built-in to the BaseSFS use:
PuppyMenu > Setup > remove builtin packages
