Today I installed KDE from Ubuntu using this (http://www.psychocats.net/ubuntu/kde) guide. I just wanted to try it out, and in the end I decided that I preferred GNOME. So to uninstall KDE, I found this (http://www.psychocats.net/ubuntu/puregnome) guide, but whenever I enter the apt-get command to uninstall, it tries to remove non-KDE packages like Wine and OpenOffice.org. The guide recommends that I just reinstall them after uninstalling KDE, but wouldn't there an easier way? Is there a way to tell apt-get to only uninstall the specified packages, and nothing else?

Thanks in advance,
Cory Walker
