Can I remove Mate elements via synaptic

Postby ambrostan on Thu Jan 24, 2013 11:47 am

Running LMDE with Cinnamon desktop. I currently have the option to switch desktop environments when logging out/in. I have not intention of changing desktop so can I uninstall components for other desktops via synaptice?

Linux Mint is funded by ads and donations.

Sure, but it will be some work to crowbar them out... I did a comparison between packages installed on Linux Mint 13 Cinnamon, MATE and Xfce a while ago, and saved the results. I have this file with packages that were only installed on MATE. Also on LMDE, you should be able to safely remove these packages as these are MATE programs and libraries:
Code: Select all
atril
atril-common
caja
caja-common
caja-gksu
caja-open-terminal
engrampa
engrampa-common
eom
eom-common
gir1.2-mate-menu
libatril
libcaja-extension
libmarco
libmatebluetooth
libmatekbd
libmatenotify
libmatepolkit
libmatesensorsappletplugin
libmateweather
libmateweather-common
marco
marco-common
mate-applets
mate-applets-common
mate-bluetooth
mate-calc
mate-common
mate-conf-editor
mate-control-center
mate-desktop
mate-desktop-common
mate-dialogs
mate-doc-utils
mate-icon-theme
mate-keyring
mate-media
mate-media-common
mate-media-pulse
mate-netspeed
mate-notification-daemon
mate-panel
mate-panel-common
mate-polkit
mate-power-manager
mate-power-manager-common
mate-screensaver
mate-sensors-applet
mate-session-manager
mate-settings-daemon
mate-settings-daemon-common
mate-settings-daemon-pulse
mate-system-monitor
mate-system-tools
mate-terminal
mate-terminal-common
mate-text-editor
mate-utils
mate-window-manager
mint-artwork-mate
mint-info-mate

And the following is a list of libraries that aren't needed on Cinnamon either, though these aren't only for MATE--that was the only desktop environment that had them installed for one of the MATE applications required them I recall.
Code: Select all
libencode-locale-perl
liberror-perl
libfile-listing-perl
libfont-afm-perl
libhtml-format-perl
