How To Remove KDE Completely

Postby Fajah on Fri May 11, 2012 10:07 am

I recently tried the latest KDE desktop environment and don't really like it. How do I completely remove it?

Thanks in advance.

Ohhh wait...damn...that's Windows :mrgreen:
Just kidding.

Do you have any other desktop envirnment installed? Then log in Mint using one of those other DE's and open a terminal and type this command:
Code: Select all
sudo apt-get remove kubuntu-desktop --purge
(copy and paste it in the terminal using Ctrl+Shift+v).

Press Enter and type your password. If everything goes well, KDE should be removed now.

Thanks. I've seemed to come full circle. I initially tried KDE when first introduced to Linux Mint 12 (and Linux in general). After trying most of the DE's that are available, Mint 13 KDE works for me the best and pretty much meets all my needs.
