    Re: Psychocats Tutorials Updates

    I was actually doing the other one as an example:
    http://www.psychocats.net/ubuntu/purekubuntu

    But thanks. Any help is much appreciated. And if I retire them, I'd like to put something up in place. I did find a sort of workaround, which was to remove libgtk and some other package, which basically removed almost anything Gnome-related. Not the cleanest...

    You can't exactly just remove ubuntu-desktop package can you?

    Nope. It's just a metapackage. Won't remove all the dependencies.

    Ah, gotcha.

    I was thinking of just doing a purge of ubuntu-desktop and then apt-get autoremove.

    I'll try your tutorial and report back.

    EDIT: See here:

    EDIT2: On the offchance of aptitude doing any better than apt-get, I installed it and ran the whole string listed in your tutorial and all that accomplished was removing KDE (and a whole boatload of other stuff) entirely.

    I've attached a text file of the output I got.

    Note: KDE no longer loads after running that and it looks like all the gnome stuff is still there, judging from what is listed in /etc/init.d/

    EDIT since I didn't mention it last night, removing all those packages from aptitude resulted in an unbootable system - all it did was sit at the kde start screen and didn't do anything else.

    Yeah, it's not looking too promising. I may just have to retire the set of "pure" desktop environment tutorials.

    I'm still brainstorming...

    I'd planned on doing some testing very soon, probably as soon as Friday or Saturday, but I'd wanted to start with "pure Ubuntu" and then move on to the other flavors.

    I could however begin with pure Kubuntu if you wish. I've just seldom used KDE

    I'll bet we can figure it out.

    Re: Psychocats Tutorials Updates

    I did a minimal install off the xubuntu 12.04 cd yesterday after which I copied all the deb files in the pool folder over to my /var/cache/apt/archives.

    The weird thing is sometimes when I install one of the default apps as found in xubuntu cd it still pulls in files off the repos. It's not a lot though. Surely it should not have to get stuff off the net. I'm thinking the stuff it's pulling off the net is probably stuck into some bigger meta package. It's not a version issue either.

    Things are becoming complicated is all I can say, as you might have noticed.

    Re: Psychocats Tutorials Updates

    Hey! You've saved my butt more than a few times in the last 2 years I've been learning Ubuntu/Linux on my own.

    I just wanted to ask or mention....I was using the broken sudo today (I sometime or other had changed the permissions and when I saw the error knee jeck changed it to 700 UH WRONG!)

    This was on a netbook so dropping into root still left me unable to change to rw mount....but the recovery menu actually has a remount option which looked right "Remount / read/write and mount all other file systems" I tried it but I'm not sure I didn't miss a step somewhere or else the damage was done because now I can't log in even as a guest.

    But I wanted to mention it in case this is new. So you could decide if you wanted to mention this alternate menu on your site!

    I"m using Ubuntu 11.10 with xfce not unity and KDE base apps thrown in.

    Thanks for all the hard work!

    I heard about this from other Oneiric (11.10) users, but I didn't see it when I was doing screenshots for Precise (12.04), so I just put in the command, because it should work on both versions.
