How do I uninstall Sylpheed?

Or if not possible how do I disable it as the default E-mail app that
pops up when one clicks on an E-mail addy?

Thanks! doc

/usr/local/bin/defaultemail
That sets the default email app. Actually, it doesn't set it, it's just that everything that calls an email app is supposed to point to that instead, and it runs the app it's set to.
So, there may be a program that calls sylpheed directly rather than defaultemail. If so, you'd have to edit that program's preferences (usually under edit-preferences).

PupBeGone will remove it if it's in by default, but there isn't much point unless you're either remastering or using an option 2 hd install.

Oh yeah! PupBeGone really needs to be called in the same menu as PupGet
and DotPup. It just makes good sense!

I wonder if many of the default selections for Puppy should not be default
but instead, after the initial base install Puppy offers menus of alternatives.

This would further shrink the base package and provide huge diversity.
The user could choose Seamonkey, Opera, Mozilla-Sylpheed, Firefox-
Thunderbird, or other options and the app configuration and size of their
individual install customized -- and Puppy will be easier to keep small.
(Perhaps Dillo could be a minimalist default Web app.)

I am presuming that like me most Puppy users run from a HDD install
and only run from LiveCD or USB or CF or whatever on development
and test and temporary use machines.

Thanks for PupBeGone!

Where does one find PupBeGone? It isn't a menu selection and I tried to find a file or directory with the name.

I don't even have a hard drive in my computer Smile . I run from multisession DVD only, although I am about to try installing to a USB flash drive now that I have a computer that might boot from USB2.

I agree with you though: however you use Puppy, it would be nice if default settings were done in a way that is consistent throughout Puppy and easy to figure out how to change, if possible.
