Help with the removepreview.sh script for bulk uninstallation of packages in Lucid Puppy 5.2.5
 
I want to uninstall several packages at the same time. I came by the removepreview.sh script and found it helpful. Because it is the script which makes the uninstall packages wizard work. But how do i give the specific packages name to the script. I copied(made a copy leaving the original script untouched) the script to an another location. I changed the variable declared at the starting of the script to the name of one of the package i want to uninstall. I ran the script and a dialog box came up the same way with the name of the package as it come when used the uninstall wizard with gui. But when i saw the list of installed packages, the package did not get uninstalled. How do i do it?
