    Remove Trinity Deskstop?

    Running 12.04 LTS. Installation of Trinity appeared to go as expected. However getting crashes. Attempted to shutdown in normal fashion, after 3 minutes of waiting had to hit the reset button.

    How can one remove?

    Thanks

    Hello and Welcome

    Can you describe how Trinity was installed ? I see no such package in the ubuntu repository , but I am using 13.10 and it might have been available for 12.04.

    The above worked, the TDE no longer exists. However even after shutting down, reboot, I still get the TDE log in, have to do log in, then select my preferred deskstop, Gnome, then I am taken to that.

    The following will remove un-needed packages which would marked as autoremovable in synaptic .
    Code:
    sudo apt-get autoremove

    That cleaned up a lot of pkgs, however still had to go through TDE when shutting down and starting up.

    I am not certain if Trinity uses KDM which is the KDE login screen and one way to find out is to install synaptic if you don't have it and look for and remove the package/s. I have tried the KDE desktop in the past and as I remember it was difficult to remove everything without some manual cleanup using the synaptic package manager.

    Removed Trinty KDM via Synaptic, which I had to access via terminal, which is a new problem, did a removal, clean, reinstall twice.
    Shut down stalled so had to hit reset button.
    On restart got msg that Trinty KDM failed, then was taken directly to Trinty Desktop, no log in, logged out, was able to log onto Unbuntu.
    This is like a snowball!
