Remove all gnome3 packages

Postby JustB on Fri Dec 28, 2012 11:44 am

Hello everybody.

I just installed MATE from XFCE. Probably I installed some Gnome3 packages because now I have duplicate entries for calculator, archive manager, etc.

It is possible to remove all Gnome 3 packages? How do I do it?

Thank you

If you meant that you had the LMDE Xfce installed, and you added MATE to it, then in fact you of course added MATE programs. The GNOME 3 programs were already there, as part of LMDE Xfce (of which most programs are from GNOME 3). Installing MATE would have installed MATE programs.

Having cleared that up, which ones do you want to remove now? The MATE programs, or the GNOME 3 programs that came with LMDE Xfce?

Thank you for clearing that: I thought I had mistakenly installed those packages.

I'd like to remove the GNOME 3 ones which, I think, I don't need anymore, right?
