    Upgrading w/ additional desktop enviornments already installed

    I'm running Ubuntu Gutsy and I want to upgrade to Hardy. However, besides GNOME I also have the KDE and Xfce desktops installed. Will this affect the upgrade? And if so, do I just remove the KDE and Xfce desktop packages via synaptic to get rid of them, or do I need to do it through the terminal (in which case I would require some help with the commands)?
    Thank you in advance everyone.

    it should present no problem, I run a mixed environment and had no issues. As long as you have one desktop metapackage installed it should be ok.

    +1 to Oldsoldier2003: I upgraded from 7.04 to 7.10 with KDE installed. So both the Gnome and KDE components got upgraded to the 7.10 version.
