Dependencies: are they also uninstalled when you uninstall a skin?
#1
Hi,

per the title: are dependencies installed when a skin is installed also uninstalled when you uninstall that skin?

If not, how can I see what dependencies the skin installs so I can manually uninstall them?

Thanks

If you uninstall a skin then check there for orphans you should get everything.

After much testing, this turns out not to be the case. I've seen required add-ons flagged as dependent that were not orphaned after the skin was uninstalled and other required add-ons not marked dependent at all.

Standing by my original statement. A clean install of kodi is the only foolproof method of removing every add-on a skin may have installed.

Fair enough.  I was going off how it's supposed to work, it's not very often that I uninstall anything.
