Code: Select all

apt-get autoremove

will give you the list of packages no other package depends on. You could choose then if you wish to deinstall them all, or select later those which you are sure you ain't have build a app from source against.

I have destroyed two installations already with apt get autoremove, both times it ended up removing almost every component in the system... So I don't trust that really as a solution to anything. I have stuff always that I simply must have compiled, since it's not available.

I'm not familiar with the process of compiling with another installation, that makes sense. I need to google that out... Is it then so that after compiling the dependencies are not needed anymore in case the compile depended on something that is not available from the official repos? So somehow only th executable can be safely moved?

Also: how do I install from the KX Studio repos? I have them added, but apt-cache search does not find anything with "vcv" or "rack". I'm running on Ubuntu 18.

for the kxstudio repos, you just need to refresh the "software sources" so it finds the kxstudio provided stuff.
on the CLI, it is as quick as this:

Code: Select all

sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get dist-upgrade
sudo apt-get install vcvrack

Note that, intentionally, the kxstudio build of vcvrack does not "phone-home" or allow to download plugins from vcvrack website.
The change in C++ compiler makes the binaries incompatible.
