How To Uninstall xvfb On Kali Linux 2017.1

To uninstall xvfb just follow these instructions.

Uninstall just xvfb

Virtual Framebuffer 'fake' X server and no physical input devices. It emulates a dumb framebuffer using virtual memory. The primary use of this server was intended to be server testing, but other novel uses for it have been found, including testing clients against unusual depths and screen configurations, doing batch processing with Xvfb as a background rendering engine, load testing, as an aid to porting the X server to a new platform, and providing an unobtrusive way to run applications that don't really need an X server but insist on having one anyway.Kali Linux 2017.1x112:1.19.3-1
sudo apt-get remove xvfb

This will remove just the xvfb package itself.

Uninstall xvfb and its dependencies

sudo apt-get remove --auto-remove xvfb

This will remove the xvfb package and any other dependant packages which are no longer needed.

Purging your config/data too

 Caution! Purged config/data can not be restored by reinstalling the package.
