Uninstall extension and his dependances
« on: May 28, 2018, 12:00:35 AM »
Hi again, I am very glad now with TCL on my laptop  :D but some doubts I have about how to unistall extensions (I know, just delete it from onboot.lst and delete the .tcz file) but altough that works for no-deps extensions, with extensions which have a lot of dependences, it is a bit of work reading every .dep file and erasing manually every file.

I wonder if there is already a tutorial to delete an extension and his dependences in one step, just like installing.

For example, recently I installed Skype and Tightvnc, only for one use, and now I want to unistall both, but they have a lot of dependences, I do not wanna take the risk  :-[

Using Apps GUI:
Click on Apps -> Maintenance -> Dependencies And Deletions
Then select the extension you want to remove
Click on Dependencies -> Mark for Deletion
Download a copy and keep it handy: Core book ;)

Hello julcar

Use the extension management application “APPS” 

Manually uninstalling extensions may remove dependencies required by other extensions which will prevent those extensions from loading, sometimes that means critical system dependencies.

Run from APPS; Update dep files and then fetch missing deps

APPS > dependencies and deletions
