When LMDE was first released in Sept (32 bit) it didn't have evolution installed by default. Then there was a package that came through the updates called 'gnome-core' that added evolution and some other bits. See: viewtopic.php?f=141&t=62021
From info on that thread, I did this, each is a separate command:
- Code: Select all
apt-get remove gnome-core
Then I removed evolution and evolution-common and a couple of other related packages. I did leave evolution-data-server, that is required by other core packages. I kept the info. handy and did the same thing on LMDE 64bit, no evolution installed here anymore.
