Uninstalled skills appear back after a while


I need to uninstall two skills I will never use: spotify (I don’t have a premium subscription) and pandora (I’m outside the US) and I want to test plexmusic-skill, which hotword is “play”, and mycroft insists in try Pandora skill with that word, so I’ve uninstalled those skills, both with msm remove and directly with rm -rf /opt/mycroft/skills/...

The skills, after a while, appear back after several minutes or the mark 1 reboot.

I don’t know how to completely get rid of a skill I don’t want.


Hi Malevolent, I know I posted this in Chat already but just in case others are looking for this in the future…

Default Mycroft Skills will return unless you blacklist them in your mycroft-conf, the following should sort that out:

"skills": {
    "blacklisted_skills": ["mycroft-pandora", "mycroft-spotify"]

More details on mycroft-conf in the documentation:


Sweet! Thank you @gez-mycroft!
You saved my day :blush:

P.s. That’s why I posted the question on the forum, besides it will be indexed by search engines, I think is a better place to search for recurrent questions
