    You'll need to give people a bit more fo an idea what it is you want to achieve here.

    You want to remove kde and leave nothing on the hdd?

    You want to remove kde and had something else before?

    Re: I need to remove KDE

    Ubuntu Lucid is mentioned in your details in the left column so I assume that you have installed KDE on Ubuntu Lucid. So to uninstall it, here is the command.

    Code:

    Re: I need to remove KDE

    If you actually installed Kubuntu and you remove KDE you will be left with a bare system. Make sure you have either Ubuntu-desktop, Xubuntu-desktop or Lubuntu-desktop (I think that is the name) installed first.

    Re: I need to remove KDE

    If you in fact did have another desktop installed and then installed kubuntu following post #3 will remove all kde apps.

    It's possible that the commands might remove some other packages you have since added to the default and want to keep. If that's the case, keep track of which packages those are and reinstall them.

    Please try to give more info.

    Did you download the KUbuntu ISO image then burned it to disk and installed it onto your computer?

    Try to press ctrl + alt + F1 then you will get command command line asking for you to log in. Log in the type the following.

    Code:
    sudo apt-get remove --purge kubuntu-desktop
    Next type the following.

    Code:
    sudo reboot
    The above will remove all Desktop Envirnments leaving you with cammand line system.

    Did you install Ubuntu then added kubuntu-desktop?

    Make sure you log out of KUbuntu and choose to log into GNOME. Then open up the terminal and type the following.

    Code:
    sudo apt-get remove --purge kubuntu-desktop
    Did you install just the bare minimum of KDE?

    Code:
    sudo apt-get remove --purge kde-minimal
    Did you install the Alternate CD as CLI and installed bare minimum IDE's?

    Code:
    sudo apt-get remove --purge kde-minimal
    Are you trying to remove KDE from inside of KDE such as GUI Package Manager?

    If so this could cause some complications. Try using a terminal to remove it or another desktop environment.
    It is un American to not like Open Source. It is un Christian to not follow the ways of Open Source.

    So was he successful?

    I'm in the same boat, I think. I installed Ubuntu10.10 and tried KDE desktop environment. I'm not liking it and would like to revert back to Gnome.

    Thanks.

    Re: I need to remove KDE

    Thank you. Do I have to be in Gnome or can I just run that from KDE?
