Removal of Appelets


Newbie to Linux 10.10. Have 3 weather applets installed & cannot remove them. This should be easy!

What is Linux 10.10? Do you know what distribution you are using? Perhaps Ubuntu? If you tell us that, someone will be able to tell you exactly how to uninstall software packages.

OP, since your post indicates you were using Ubuntu when you posted it, I'll throw in a couple of Ubuntu-based ideas:

Did you install the applets through the Ubuntu One or Synaptic Package Manager interfaces? Then you should be able to remove them the same way.

Did you install them as add-ons from a browser? If so, you should be able to remove them via the browser interface, though you might have to hunt a bit to find the right menu item for doing that.

In any event, when you post again, please include how you got them, as well as your distro. That will make answering your question much easier.
