Uninstalling GoogleDrive and Google Calendar


Trying to uninstall Google Drive and Google Calendar using Terminal.
Getting response - 'unable to locate package Grive-tools'. Any ideas for a way forward?

How, and from where, did you install them originally?

The command is apt, so it should be sudo apt purge packagename, without the hyphen.

Are you sure that grive-tools is the correct package name? If you right-click on the links to Google Drive and Google Calendar and choose "Properties" or similar, what command do the links represent?

On reflection I think these may be cloud apps run through ICE. I am not familiar with how Peppermint actually uses these but I think a fair amount of apps are not actually loaded onto the OS. I wonder if these are simply icons on my desktop providing a link to the off-machine app. However I would like to remove anything google. There do not appear to be any right click links to verify the actual package name.

The right-click link wouldn't verify the package name, it would show the command that is being executed when the link is clicked, and from there you could ask the package manager what package is linked to that command.

However if that is not working for you, you could always ask the package manager if it has any packages with grive in their name:

Code:
dpkg -l "*grive*"

Right click shows command:

chromium-browser --app=http://drive.google.com/

Query of package manager shows:

dpkg-query: no packages found matching *grive*

Great. Both are web apps then, so, on the face of it, no local packages to delete.

That's fine. So with these ICE/web apps (there appear to be quite a few) - I can ignore them as far as anything being on my system? I want to keep the OS as light as possible. Can I just delete the links for them in the menu?
