Wondering.....

Eddie G. O'Connor Jr.

Ok so I've searched through all of the Internet links I could find and somehow I can't find what I'm looking for, here's my problem:


I have installed......on a Lenovo  ThinkPad T-430 laptop Ubuntu 16.04, I have used it regularly for a while, (since 13.04!) and I cannot figure out how to remove "Amazon" from my machine. Mind you...I've searched for it and when I do?...it comes up as not being there, but the ICON is STILL in my HUD/Lenses and there's no right-clicking to "Move To Trash" or "Permanently Delete" can anyone shed light on this issue for me? If its unrepairable?...then I'll be ditching this OS....we get enough spying and "ad-slinging" from the likes of Android and Windows....don't want or need it from my main Linux machines.


Thanks In Advance

On my linux machines I removed/detached the Amazon Icon from the tool bar. It no longer appears.

You can unlock the Amazon icon from the launcher, then (in system
settings under privacy) turn off "include online search results".

According to my notes from long ago, this gets rid of all the shopping
and webapp stuff (not just Amazon):

   sudo apt-get remove unity-lens-shopping
   sudo apt-get remove unity-webapps-common

Use with care.

My system doesn't search on-line, but if I type "amazon" into the dash,
I still see the webapp. Since it will not run unless I tell it to, I'm
content with that.

Regards, K.
