I have done a full install of the new Maynard desktop in development, using this script here, and added my user to the group weston-launch. Is there any way to completely undo these changes, please?

1 Answer 1


Note: Prefer aptitude over apt-get.

Let's take the script backwards:

aptitude remove --purge maynard

Comment out (or delete) the last two lines in /boot/config.txt which say


Rename /etc/apt/sources.list.d/collabora-experimental.list to /etc/apt/sources.list.d/collabora-experimental.list.removed (only *.list files are taken into account).

This should undo what the script has done.

  • Thanks. What about all the dependencies that it installs as well?

  • I also worked out that I need to execute sudo groupdel weston-launch as well to remove the group.

  • aptitude is advertised to take care of the dependencies better than apt-get. It should remove all of them along with maynard.
