    Are you asking how to remove software in general or if there is a magical command to remove all the bloatware that came with a specific package?

  • A magical command would be great,lol...its just a lot of bloatware that I hated,but if I need to do one by one its ok...I guess the pop store is the way to go in that case... Aug 2, 2019 at 1:30
  • apt-get autoremove --purge

Assuming these were all installed as dependencies of lightdm, sudo apt-get autoremove --purge should get rid of them!

Source: Ubuntu Manpage: apt-get
