Hi,


I have some questions. I'm not very familiar with linux, so maybe it 
will appear to some of you a little bit stupid, but at some point one 
need to start.


I want to deinstall rhythmbox completely from my ubuntu system. Here the 
deinstallation way which I thought would be the right one:


    ossi at bebektor:~/GitSrc$ sudo dpkg -l |egrep rhy
    ii  gir1.2-rb-3.0:amd64
    3.3-1ubuntu7                                  amd64 GObject
    introspection data for the rhythmbox music player
    ii  librhythmbox-core9:amd64
    3.3-1ubuntu7                                  amd64 support library
    for the rhythmbox music player
    ii  rhythmbox 3.3-1ubuntu7                                  amd64
    music player and organizer for GNOME
    ii  rhythmbox-data 3.3-1ubuntu7                                  all
    data files for rhythmbox
    ii  rhythmbox-plugin-zeitgeist
    3.3-1ubuntu7                                  all zeitgeist plugin
    for rhythmbox music player
    ii  rhythmbox-plugins 3.3-1ubuntu7                                 
    amd64 plugins for rhythmbox music player

    ossi at bebektor:~/GitSrc$ dpkg -l |egrep rhythm
    ossi at bebektor:~/GitSrc$


But I isn't issuing a complete deinstallation, because of this:

There are a lot of things left on my laptop which is somehow linked to 
rhythmbox. I think the stuff in $HOME is not the problem. But I'm 
worried about the other stuff. What is with the stuff in /user/share and 
/usr/lib/python3? Is there any possibility that some other applications 
will need the stuff? How can I figure it out?

Thanks
