Remove evolution and totem

Postby smika on Mon Feb 07, 2011 8:58 am

Hello,

Today I installed LMDE, I downloaded all the updates. After the updates I want to remove evolution, totem and epiphany-browser, but when I try this, it will also delete gnome-core. How can I delete these packages without breaking my whole gnome-desktop?

Thanks a lot,

Smika

How are you doing this? Synaptic, apt-get ?!?!

I didn't see any reference to core being removed when I tried it using synaptic

I tried it with "apt-get remove evolution". But when I try it with synaptic I get also the message that it will also delete the package gnome-core.

How about totem by itself?

Just looking at my system for comparison I have none of the above packages installed, including gnome-core and as my system runs perfectly well without them I would think it reasonable to assume yours would as well. But of course 'reasonable' doesn't always = 'true', so don't blame me if you try it and it does break! The packages you can't remove are evolution-data-server and evolution-data-server-common, they seem to have some connection with control centre.

I removed all the packaged included the gnome-core. After a restart everything runs fine. So I think that i don't need gnome-core.

Thanks for all the help.
