Thread: Uninstalling gnome

    Default Uninstalling gnome

    Hi, newish user here. I have Opensuse 11.0 with KDE 4.1.2 installed. For curiosity, I recently installed the GNOME desktop, just to see if I liked it. I don't. However, after installing GNOME, my file associations in KDE got all messed up and is choosing GNOME apps like Totem for video.

    Frankly, I would just like to get rid of GNOME entirely, but when I try to uninstall it using YAST, I get a seemingly endless list of dependency problems, most of which I am not sure what to do with. Is there any way to get rid of GNOME while not screwing up my KDE?

    Thanks in advance, and of course I can supply any information need.

    Probably not a good idea to remove it. It can be done.

    I would try:
    From KDE
    Yast - Software Management
    Filter by Patterns (temporarily un-check the auto check)
    In the Gnome Desktop and Base sections
    go to the packages tab at the top and choose all in this list - delete
    do this to both the base and desktop of Gnome
    then run the check

    If that doesn't work. I would leave it alone.

    There may be a way with zypper but I'm not clued up enough on zypper to tell you
