There are many different approaches to audio players under Linux. Some players focus on minimalism, others focus on features, and some aim to provide similar functionality to a media player on another platform. Rhythmbox falls into the latter category, as it was created to provide an iTunes-like interface for audio under Linux.
To play those songs, start up Rhythmbox, a music player modeled after features from Apple’s iTunes. Rhythmbox will require a few moments to index your music collection before you use it. If it doesn’t index your music library immediately, or if it doesn’t find all your songs, select Music → Import Folder.
You can uninstall or removes an installed rhythmbox-plugins package from Ubuntu through the terminal as shown below:
$ sudo apt-get remove rhythmbox-plugins
Uninstall rhythmbox-plugins including dependent package
If you would like to remove rhythmbox-plugins and it’s dependent packages which are no longer needed from Ubuntu:
$ sudo apt-get remove --auto-remove rhythmbox-plugins
When it comes to other packages, they are generally safe to remove with the apt autoremove command, since the majority of them will be packages that were installed as a dependency of another package that is no longer present on the system. However, double-check that you really do want to remove each of the packages before you do so. You can always reinstall a package if you didn’t mean to install it, and as an added benefit, if you reinstall a package that was marked for auto-removal, it won’t show up in the output as an orphan package in the future.
Use Purging rhythmbox-plugins
If you’d like to not only remove a package but also wipe out its configuration, you can use the –purge option:
$ sudo apt-get purge rhythmbox-plugins
If you use purge option along with –auto-remove, everything regarding the package will be removed. It’s really useful when you want to reinstall it again.
$ sudo apt-get purge --auto-remove rhythmbox-plugins
