    Uninstall Gnome completly from Ubuntu 14.04 LTS

    When I installed GNOME on my Ubuntu 14.04 LTS system, there was problem with my GUI. After installing Gnome there are other problems as well.
    If you have any idea how to uninstall gnome completely, and any idea on how to make Ubuntu 14.04 LTS go back to a fresh installation state, then please help me. Even after I have uninstalled Gnome, the problems persist.
    I want to say thanks in advance!

    How did you install gnome?

    Gnome cannot just be removed as Unity depends on gnome3.

    Also no need for the large font, we all have zoom if needed

    If you installed gnome-session-flashback then you should be able to uninstall it using Synaptic or software center.

    Launch Software center
    Cliick 'Installed"
    Enter flashback in search selector on top right
    Highlight by clicking on the package you wish to install (probably Window Manager (gnome-session-flashback)
    Choose remove
