colord-sane seems to be related to some printer utilities ("sane" =
I would have gone like...
~$ locate colord-sane # needs mlocate package
~$ dpkg -S /usr/lib/colord/colord-sane
So colord-sane is installed as part of colord package.
~$ apt-cache --installed rdepends colord
It is a cups *recommendation*, so you can uninstall it while holding on
~# apt-get remove colord
However, if your printer can also work as scanner, then you may
actually need colord-sane in the future. So, instead of removing
colord, it is probably a better practice to disable colord-sane service
to see if it makes any difference. If it does, then you may debug why
colord-sane is stepping over the keyboard.
