Too late now but it is always a good idea to have a backup of your system partition (and home as well) before installing these dubious addons.

Maybe Ofnuts can suggest a good linux backup utility for the next time. I use an Acronis bootable usb because I have used that for a dozen+ years but it is a commercial product.

True. I used to have a system restore like tool. A while back the original author abandoned the project and Linux Mint took it under their umbrella. Not sure whether it is still available for Ubuntu (mine is 22.04).

It was called Time Machine or something similar. Had a dark red and black logo


It's Timeshift.

started a bug report on GitHub

Got a quick response from @Sanster, removed around 300 MB of models from cache.

Is there any simple method to get rid of dependencies in this list


RE: Remove Lama Cleaner - meetdilip - 02-20-2023

Manually uninstalled everything one by one except

pip uninstall markupsafe
Found existing installation: MarkupSafe 2.0.1
Not uninstalling markupsafe at /usr/lib/python3/dist-packages, outside environment /usr
Can't uninstall 'MarkupSafe'. No files were found to uninstall.

Thanks for the continuous help and inputs Smile

You can use a utility such as filelight (likely available from your repo) to figure out where the space is and remove files by hand if necessary (or this could give you clues about which package to uninstall).

Thanks @Ofnuts, will check and update.
