Old Fumble Fingers Did It Again

Trying to find a solution to install an add-on to Gimp to remove items from pictures ..... can't do that on XnView DE .... tried to install it on Gimp ver 2.99 which I have installed but couldn't get it to work ....

I then had a brain storm .... install ver 2.10 also cause it is said to work on it .... wanting to distinguish the two from each other I went for the flatpak version ..... which worked just fine but when I opened flatpak list I found all this garbage came along with installing flatpak .....

How can I get rid of about 80% of this â– â– â– â–  .....

Found this video on the tube and it to me was very informative .... I think it would be great for newbies including me ......

Now to figure out which are apps and which I need to leave installed .....


These specific names can be used to uninstall flatpaks.

flatpak uninstall org.kde.krita

From the looks of it, only the below might be what you would be interested in keeping:

Once all you want removed are gon, you can run

flatpak uninstall --delete-data

Launch GIMP and test the plugin and that it is working, then close it out and run:

flatpak uninstall --unused

For those who just want a .deb version of GIMP:


For Kria:

or any other package that might be available:


[Will be updating the unofficial manual to reflect this option of third party installation]


Thanks I'll work on it today .....
