Klipper - Can't Remove

So for some reason after doing a recent update KDE apps popped up, I had managed to remove most but for some reason I can't find a way to get rid of Klipper, nor does it show up anywhere but applications menu.

Any ideas of how to get rid of it ?
Removing / Purging does nothing - Package 'klipper' is not installed, so not removed.

How did you install it in the first place?

For stubborn packages, Synaptic Package Manager can help

sudo apt install synaptic

Launch Synaptic, then use the Search button on the upper right side of the toolbar. Type in klipper. It should show you the package in a list with an icon showing whether or not it is installed.
If it shows as installed, right click the entry and choose "Remove Completely."
Then click Apply Button on the upper toolbar.

Did not, done some update and realised several of KDE apps had popped up.

Something to do with latte dock i was testing out but ended up removing?

KDE applications, including Klipper, are Not Included in the Zorin OS repos.

There must be an added repository...
Can you post the output of your Sources.list, please?
Or a screenshot of the other software in Software & Updates showing the full list...

Does not appear in the Synaptic PM.

Here is screenshot.

That is the whole list?
If I try installing Klipper, it relies on Plasma in order to do so...

I wonder if you have a left over Desktop Entry for it, without the actual application installed.
Since it cannot be removed and does not show up in Synaptic...
You can check /usr/share/applications
and look for Klipper there.
You can elevate to root

sudo -i


And then navigate to /usr/share/applications/klipper.desktop and remove the klipper.desktop file.

it does in fact find org.kde.klipper.desktop document file.

Yes, thats all the repos I got installed.
Have not messed around with putting plasma on, or any other environments in fact!
Perhaps when was trying out LATTE Dock I had accidentally managed to get something else, but unsure on that.

Also removing doc file did help.

It must be. I have never tried out Latte Dock. So, I took a quick look and:

Latte is a dock based on plasma frameworks

There it is.
