fiver,
i would start looking for the usual suspect
Code: Select all
dpkg -l | grep nautilus


in 2 xfce installs it reports
Code: Select all
zerozero@debian:~$ dpkg -l | grep nautilus
ii  libnautilus-extension1a                     3.4.2-1+build1                     amd64        libraries for nautilus components - runtime version

Code: Select all
zerozero@un-xfce:~$ dpkg -l | grep nautilus
ii  libnautilus-extension1a                3.4.2-1+build1                       amd64        libraries for nautilus components - runtime version

fiver,
you are in xfce, right?
if it was me i would start cleaning the house
- you don't (probably) need nautilus
sudo apt-get -s purge <each one of the listed above, one at a time>
check what else is/would be removed (you are only simulating here, if the output looks ok remove the -s switch)
afaik the only pkg that you won't be able to remove is libnautilus-extension1a, all the rest should be safe.

this is the first part (the easy one :lol: )

second part:
Code: Select all
dpkg -l | grep gnome
now the list should be huge and you can't remove all of it (actually there's things there that if you remove you'll break your install: like keyring and networkmanager)
so here you have to look for the obvious:
- gnome-shell
- gnome-terminal
- gnome-system-monitor
(there's a few more that i don't remember now :P ) but again always careful with those removals (watch what goes with it)

in the end (and after some trials) you will have a cleaner system.

EDIT:
got now those updates
Code: Select all
The following packages will be upgraded:
  chromium chromium-browser chromium-inspector exim4-config grub-common grub-pc grub-pc-bin
  grub2-common libpython2.7 python2.7 python2.7-dev python2.7-minimal tar
13 upgraded, 0 newly installed, 0 to remove and 0 not upgraded.
i'm in kde (and it's free of gnome intrusions :roll: )

Yer a peach, zerozero :)
I AM in Xfce.
I'll pull the obvious stuff out and err on the side of caution. Stuff that MAY have pulled in nautilus and gnome stuff: TrueCrypt -it launches nautilus by default, it seems. The other is dropbox -even though I've followed some tutorials to get it working with xfce/thunar I think the initial install might have pulled in nautilus (or wanted to).
About to try your suggestions and I'll report back if anything comes up -not hugely afraid of breaking things as I have a recent clonezilla backup.
Thanks again!

Cautious of pulling out the above, I know not to remove keyring and networkmanager. Thoughts on if it'd be worth it to play around with removing stuff with gnome in the name or...?
As always -thank you!

fiver, sorry for the delay, i wanted to boot into this install and get this info from this VM

this is a lmde-xfce install (VM) where i did what you are trying now
removal history http://pastebin.com/1kNrbRNa
gnome libs installed right now http://pastebin.com/7KgHYggA (there's still a lot in there)

as this VM is not in my main system i've been a bad maintainer and probably the last DU was couple months ago :shock: :shock: (always a BIG error if you're tracking testing) but right now the DU output (295 upgraded, 9 newly installed, 1 to remove and 0 not upgraded.) tho daunting is relatively gnome free (and surely there's no gnome-shell or nautilus creeping in) http://pastebin.com/nRj7C3Wz
so all in all the main objective is accomplish but i know that there's a better cleaning up to do in that gnome list

Thanks zerozero (as always),
I've been cautiously pulling things out and haven't run into any major issues. I somehow pulled out gdm3 which became obvious at reboot :D , I installed mdm and that was that. O ther than that I accidentally removed gedit (gnome, but I like it). All easy to recover from.
I'm happy getting nautilus out -and gnome-shell. I'm not desperate for a totally pristine xfce on this install (we'll see how the unofficial lmde xfce goes).
All is well and thanks again o/

and today i found out that nvidia launched a new v. with support to xorg 1.11
it should be in experimental soon
http://www.phoronix.com/scan.php?page=n ... &px=OTk2MQ

this is a post from oct 2011 and yesterday saved this install :D
few days ago i upgraded all my hardware (new MB, new ram, new cpu, new power supply) and kept the same hdd with my installs;
i knew that removing the nvidia card and installing the HD4000 intel would bring issues but i managed to solve them *easily* in the other installs except this;
the same procedure would either give me a depressing tty or worst just a blinking cursor;
after 3 days of some hair-pulling :lol: yesterday (between a coffee&cigarette) i remembered this breakage and "waitasecond!! is xorg-video-intel installed? nahh :shock: "

fixed 8)

debian wheezy is expected to be released as the next debian 7 next weekend (4th/5th may http://lists.debian.org/debian-devel-an ... 00006.html)
====
this means (for us tracking directly testing) that we will see again the awakening of Testing (this time with codename Jessie) in the day(s) immediately after.

this topic (more than 2 years long) fulfilled its purpose and will be locked then. it's better (with Jessie's cycle) to start afresh; the new topic is here >>
