    Removing KDE desktop

    I installed KDE desktop with 'apt-get' few days ago and tried it. I found I don't like it and I want to uninstall it and get rid of it! Only problem is that I cannot seem to uninstall it with apt-get remove! How do I take off KDE desk top totally off my Ubuntu?

    Have you tried synaptic package manager or you could type this into your konsole
    sudo aptitude remove kubuntu-desktop
    It only works on 8.04!

    Re: Removing KDE desktop

    I managed to uninstall KDE desktop using Aptitude. It took some of my programs which was installed separately too! but I reinstalled them.

    The problem is I still have the KDE option in in log in session selection menu. how do I take it off from the Session menu at the start up?

    I am upgrading in a couple of days to 2MB of RAM in my current system. 2MB is all it can hold. With Linux as long as it doesn't mechanically fail It should be good for many more years...(U Listening Microsoft?) Thanks Linux!

    Re: Removing KDE desktop

    I want to do the opposite. I installed the KDE desktop on top of Ubuntu Oneiric and I want to remove Gnome. How can I do that?
