    need to remove completely kde

    okay i know its been asked a million times .. but believe me i tried !!! lol
    anyway, to begin with i downloaded Kubuntu-dvd.11.04 a week ago and as its turned out i dont like kde anymore .. so i installed ubuntu-desktop and so far it feels like home again !

    now, when i installed the kde form dvd i installed much more package i actually required like languages (too many of them !) so i dont need any kde package because i m using gnome and i m quite happy with gnome apps !

    now the question is how can i completely remove kde ?!? i tried apt-get remove kubuntu-desktop from gnome session but it only removed 553kb package - which doesnt seem right ?!?! so anyone help me please ?!

    thanks

    Also, search Synaptics for kubuntu-desktop. That should remove plenty. Also search for 'kde' and remove what you find.

    Try running 'sudo apt-get autoremove', this may fix some of the broken packages (by removing the conflicting bits).

    Re: need to remove completely kde

    Well if a package has unmet dependencies then remove it, don't be afraid to.

    EDIT: You shouldn't be afraid because the command I gave you will afterwards install ubuntu-desktop again if it was somehow removed, therefore the whole galore of packages ubuntu needs to work.
