Hi,

I installed KDE on a normal Gnome 10.04 installation and now I want to remove Gnome due to the duplicated applications.

What is the best way to do this?

Thanks,

Ian

Note: this may remove some gnome (ubuntu) things that you use e.g firefox.

in the time it takes you to do that that and get it rite, kubuntu would be ready to go if you just backed up your stuff and installed kubuntu from scratch!

however, if you don't follow my suggestion, at least backup your stuff before doing that.

yes - you are probably right, I may do that yet :)

Yes, installing Kubuntu from scratch is *usually* the best way. I installed Ubuntu to try it out, because it's been awhile since I last used it, but ended up wanted to switch back to Kubuntu. It was easier for me to use the afore mentioned method than to download Kubuntu, make a live disk, and reinstall.

Thanks for the command to remove all of gnome!

Also,

sudo apt-get remove --purge ...
might be better
