    Re: HowTo: Fully Uninstall the ubuntu-desktop meta-package

    I originally installed Ubuntu Jaunty - and then decided to try the KDE desktop so installed that. I have not used gnome since and actually ran the update to Lucid in KDE.

    I have now decided that I like KDE better so want to get rid of all the gnomes. Given this history - Can I use the method mentioned above for that - or do I need to do a clean Kubuntu install??

    Re: HowTo: Fully Uninstall the ubuntu-desktop meta-package

    Hi,

    wow that is a lot of stuff for one command line command

    One more question - i noticed that at the end it does an apt-get install kubuntu - why is that? Given that I am already running Kubuntu (see history in prev post) If I run it again will it just ignore the things that are already installed?

    It's tacked on just off on the off-chance that something gets removed. If nothing gets removed, the last command will do nothing.

    OK here is what I get back:

    [sudo] password for kubisch:

    Package notification-daemon is not installed, so not removed
    Package scrollkeeper is not installed, so not removed
    Some packages could not be installed. This may mean that you have
    requested an impossible situation or if you are using the unstable
    distribution that some required packages have not yet been created
    or been moved out of Incoming.
    The following information may help to resolve the situation:

    The following packages have unmet dependencies:
    libxine1: Depends: libxine1-x (= 1.1.17-1ubuntu3) but it is not going to be installed
    E: Broken packages
    kubisch@squarebear:~$


    Any ideas?

    Hi,

    sorry my question may have been a bit short in the last post.

    Basically while I verbally understand what the response is saying - I am a bit too new to this to comprehend what this means and what I should be doing about it.

    Could anybody give me a hint please?

    Thanx a lot

    Re: HowTo: Fully Uninstall the ubuntu-desktop meta-package

    Usually that kind of error message indicates you have conflicting software sources (otherwise known as software repositories--basically online servers Ubuntu uses to fetch software you want to install).

    Can you post the output of these commands?
    Code:
    sudo apt-get update
    cat /etc/apt/sources.list
