    I tried this one to completely get rid of KDE and like half of Gnome went along with it. Somehow the system stayed up though and Gnome was fully fixed by an apt-get install ubuntu-desktop, which was a 249MB download.

    And for some reason Java, Azureus and totem-xine disappeared at the same time.

    To uninstall Kubuntu, follow this HowTo. GoldBuggie's post was speculating--it wasn't a real HowTo.

    It was clear to me when you posted it, but it may not have been to someone else who stumbled upon the thread later.

    Re: HowTo: Fully Uninstall the ubuntu-desktop meta-package

    Nah, I was just browsing the forum and stumbled on this thread and thought to myself, why not get rid of the KDE stuff I never use?

    I was just letting you know how it went so that nobody else tries it.

    Can you try the real HowTo (i.e., the first post in the thread) and let me know if it doesn't work? If so, please post the entire output of the command and its outcome in the thread--don't just say, "it doesn't work."

    I was just letting you know how it went so that nobody else tries it.
    And I'm telling you to use the command in the original post (one which I tried out on a fresh Kubuntu installation), not the one that you quoted from Goldbuggie.

    Please read the entire thread and the context of the post you quoted and tried out.

    If you're not going to read the entire thread, don't just pick a random post to try out something--go to the first post with the real HowTo instructions.

    If you try the instructions from the first post and have problems, let me know.

    Re: HowTo: Fully Uninstall the ubuntu-desktop meta-package

    This was a really good idea for a HOWTO, aysiu!

    How many readers have found it helpful?
