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.

Some PETs may not uninstall cleanly. If unsure make a backup of your Pup Save File before and after installing packages (frugal).

An alternative is to use UnPet, which is quicker than waiting for the PPM to load up.

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
