In your updates, gnome-core got updated. The gnome-core metapackage now has Epiphany and Evolution included. So, those got added when you updated. There was already a lot of talk about the gnome-core metapackage a few weeks ago. You may want to look over that thread. No harm in having a backup browser and email/calendar, however.

Was there anything wrong with selecting Preferences from the right-click menu? You can directly affect the Places items from there.

I'll let the Level 3's through, then I'll do the following, per rivenathos:

I saw an interesting fix in that bug report:


Code: Select all
aptitude unmarkauto ~R^gnome-core$
aptitude remove gnome-core


That looks more professional than the way I have done it.


Goodbye Gnome-Core Metapackage,
Thanks,
Dave
