View Full Version : [SOLVED] Remove Cinnamon DE

August 4th, 2012, 07:48 PM
Hello All,

I've been using Ubuntu for a while now, all great and good. But I can't get rid of the Cinnamon DE. I believe Cinnamon is slowing Ubuntu down, isn't that a mean thing to do to Ubi? :)

If anyone can help me, that would be great. I did try purging the PPA, using ppa-purge, but it didn't work; I think it only got rid of the PPA.

Thank you.

go to a terminal and do the following?

sudo apt-get purge cinnamon
logout and logback into ubuntu

Please see my earlier post here, to also get rid of Cinnamon's dependencies - obviously, you can skip the 'ppa-purge' steps:

Thanks KC and Kry. Sorry for reposting an old question, I searched this forum before posting but didn't find any similar threads.
