Linux Version - "Add/Remove Programs"
When I installed two distros [Red Hat 8.0 & Mandrake 9.0] I knew "zip" about Linux. So I said "Yes" to just about every package listed during the installation.
I figure install it now, since I don't know how [I still don't] to install it later. As a result I ended up with "multiple versions" of various programs [word processors, browsers, email etc...]
Now, as part of the learning process, I would like to "clean out this mess". For example, I have copies of Mozilla/bookmarks scattered in directories I can't even find. I did learn the "locate" command. I would like to remove all this and install a copy of Firefox and the bookmarks from my Windows version of Firefox.
Problem is, I don't know where to begin. Wish I had a "single listing" of installed programs [similar to Win98SE's Add/Remove Programs] where I could go down the listing "removing" what I don't want.
Can anyone offer any help ??
