Zorin OS – Remove Preloaded Applications

Depending on your purpose this script may be helpful as it will remove a lot of the preloaded applications.

CAUTION: This list of applications should be reviewed first. My intention of this removal script is to remove a lot of applications that a business or kid computer may not need. That said they have different ISO downloads for that.

cd ~/
for app in /usr/share/applications/*.desktop; do echo "${app:24:-8}"; done > applications.txt && cat applications.txt
