One editorial comment: The contraction for "it is" is spelt "it's" (with an apostrophe). "its" without an apostrophe is the possessive form of "it". When you say, "its done" you are talking about the "done" (whatever that means as a noun) that belongs to some inanimate object. You don't want to confuse your audience, do you? So you may want to correct that before going public with it.

you REALLY DO need to INFORM people that this is for a DEBIAN Based operating system
and FOR DEBIAN type OS's ONLY!!!!!!

and not EVERY "linux OS" uses Gnome3
some use KDE and the procedure is rather different
as to package managers

rehdat uses "yum"
SUSE uses "zypper"
Arch used "packman"


i use "ad" blocking and cookie blocking software

so is someone here that is not and seeing the advertising

is this more a advertising click bate ?
or not ?

Why are you running as the root user? You don't need to do that. Simply type sudo apt-get remove/purge (name of program).

In all fairness to the OP, the guide is specifically for Kali and the standard Kali install only has root...

I didn't actually know `apt-get autoremove` could be used like that -- I thought it was just used to clear up orphans after using `apt-get remove <name of package>` -- so thanks for that.

FYI, using `aptitude remove <name of package>` will auto-autoremove and save you typing 2 extra characters

Also, Kali isn't really intended for newbies and running the X server as root in a full hard drive install (rather than a live USB stick) is probably a really bad idea...
