I'd like to remove only the fortunes-husse package on linux mint. Is there a way to remove this that won't remove all parent packages?

  • Linux Mint Bug #807982 - mintsystem incorrectly depends on fortunes-husse On Linux Mint 11 I tried sudo apt-get remove fortunes-husse. Unfortunately mintsystem depends on this package and removal would cause mintsystem and 7 other packages to be removed. – karel Jun 17 '15 at 16:40
  • @karel, I understood that much. Can I just rm /usr/bin/fortunes-husse or something? – Darth Egregious Jun 17 '15 at 17:38
  • Instead of removing fortunes-husse you could make it into a backup of itself by renaming it using: sudo mv /usr/bin/fortunes-husse /usr/bin/fortunes-husse-backup – karel Jun 22 '15 at 13:21
