6.19 Wajig Removing Packages
Once a package is installed you can remove it with remove:
$ wajig remove <package name> (apt-get remove)
You can list multiple packages to remove with the one command.
$ wajig purge <package name> (apt-get --purge remove)
Packages are often installed indirectly because they are a dependency for another package. If that other package gets removed, these dependent packages remain. The -, auto, remove command will remove those packages that were not directly installed, and are no longer required:
$ wajig autoremove (apt-get autoremove)
