View Full Version : [ubuntu] So, I want to remove EVERYTHING

Yeah. I'm extremely bored at this point and I want to remove everything from Ubuntu, achieving what the Ubuntu minimal ISO is, or installing just a command line system with the alternative ISO.

Here's the thing, I want to be using Wubi. So, is there some command that'll purge everything that's installed leaving just a command line system so I can build it up from there? Or some kind of list of everything installed by default, or what I can remove without breaking the install?

The reason for wanting to use Wubi is, #1; I'm out of blank DVD's. #2; I don't feel like playing with bootloaders if I feel like removing it later on.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

You can try removing all the packages that fall under the ubuntu-desktop package. It should give you a command line system, but I personally have not tried it, so I cannot guarantee results.

Make sure you DON'T type in the '&& sudo apt-get install kubuntu-desktop' if you just want a command line system.

Eh ? Why there's kubuntu-desktop at the end of your command ? :neutral:

I believe this is one situation where rm -rf / is legitimate advice.

@pmigneous : he still needs a CLI to work with as he mentioned !

Should work if you remove everything under ubuntu-desktop, xorg, and gdm. Might not be as stripped back as a proper CLI-install off the minimal ISO, but it'd be close.

You may try deselecting everything in add/remove, then
sudo apt-get remove ubuntu-desktop or if you go with GRUB, insert the alternate CD and press F4, select "command line only".

I tried that a few days ago just because I wanted to see what would happen. Told me I couldn't remove root lol. Or maybe I forgot the -rf flag. Who knows.

It is for the best that it failed. It would have removed your CLI too.
