Debian Multimedia :: Removing The Gnome Status Bar

May 2, 2015

I would like to remove it, because typically I don't need to see it all day. Its enough if it shows up when i go to the upper left corner and see all running applications.

I found this: [URL].... but if you add the repo in that article and update apt,the repo fails.

second try(this one works): [URL].... different extension, same goal. but this one works with gnome 3.14.2 allow gnome to change files when firefox asks.

Debian Multimedia :: Current Status Of Gnome Shell?

Jul 28, 2010

I'm using Squeeze, and haven't seen an update in the Debian repo for some time. Seeing as it's due for release soon (September), can we expect some updates in the near future? I had been using Gnome Shell in Ubuntu with much success, including compiling my own. These days, I cannot afford the bandwidth, and have encountered an unknown problem [URL] under Debian Squeeze. Currently, I'm experiencing a very annoying flickering issue using the repo version which I know does not exist anymore in the current gnome development. To have at least one update now before the release date would be nice to see.

Debian Multimedia :: Removing Epiphany Without Removing Half The System?

May 31, 2011

I know a bunch of commands and I am comfortable using the terminal, I even set a powerpc server but I can't figure out how to remove epiphany on this new computer I'm setting up. I didn't install anything with tasksel. I installed gnome and xorg afterwards... I load it up and 'startx' just fine. then I check around for the programs that were installed. I lik'em gimp, lot's of utilities. gedit. anyway I find epiphany, which I have already established that I dislike, I immediately go to the root terminal (another nice program that comes with gnome) and type apt-get remove epiphany-browser-data the output says it will be deleting gnome... however I have researched and found these are simpy meta packages that don't really matter.... however under the section that states all the packages that will be removed by autoremove there is a huge list... I doubt these packages are safe to remove. how to remove epiphany without removing a huge amount of probably needed software

Debian :: Removing Totem From GNOME

Mar 8, 2011

I recently switched over to Debian Squeeze and now that I'm over the transition shock I'm starting to enjoy it a lot more than I thought I would. One little thing that is very irritating, though not show-stopping, is the fact that I cannot change the default media player in GNOME.Totem I just can't stand it for some reason and I would like to just remove it. So I whip out my'apt-get remove totem' only to see that Totem is tied to a number of GNOME components that I want to keep. Now why a media player is so intertwined with GNOME I have no idea, at least that would be appropriate to express here.Normally to change my default media player I right click on a media file, open with, remember this app for this type of file, and then I'm done. I also tried using the 'Preferred Applications' option under the 'System --> Preferences' menu with no success.

As I said this problem isn't a show-stopper but it is blankety-blankin' annoying. Any thoughts on how to resolve this would be appreciated. I have spent some time searching online but to no avail. Although I no absolutely nothing about software development I can only hope that this is a bug and that the GNOME developers didn't actually intend this. If it were intentional it would seem analogous to Windows 7 in that there is no way to remove IE from the system. Oh but you can disable it and hide it from the menu. . .

Debian Installation :: Removing Useless Parts Of GNOME

Mar 3, 2010

I've been trying to purge my system from packages I don't normally use, like Epiphany and Evolution, and I think I have been somewhat successful but I'm still struggling with GNOME when trying to keep the gnome-applets package and the system forces the installation of the evolution-data-server-common and libedataserverui1.2-8 packages.What is the role of this packages? Are they hard-wired into GNOME and cannot be remove at all? Or is there a way to discard the packages and keep the one I want?

I'm not doing this for the sake disk space; I'm only trying to take control of my desktop to always have the most clean system possible.

Debian :: Installing Firefox And Removing Iceweasel Removes GNOME

Aug 30, 2015

So I can't install Firefox, because it conflicts with Iceweasel, but it appears that uninstalling Iceweasel uninstalls GNOME (gnome & gnome-core).Is there any way around this? Perhaps telling apt that Firefox is an alternate to Iceweasel?

Debian Multimedia :: Removing GDM Without Side-effects?

Aug 2, 2011

I want to remove GDM altogether, naturally I tried:

sudo apt-get --purge remove gdm3

But it appears to be taking some lower level gnome libraries down with it. As soon as it's removed, I can no longer start gedit or gnome terminal for example. If either is run from the terminal, I see, "Cannot display" or something along those lines. I end up reinstalling gdm3 and everything works perfectly.I already used update-rc to stop the gdm daemon from booting altogether, I just want to remove it now for a greater sense of cleanliness I guess.

Debian Multimedia :: Remove KDE Applications Without Removing Entire Desktop

May 9, 2015

I've installed Debian GNU/Linux, from a Testing NetInstall ISO, then after setting up the system, I've installed the KDE desktop.Well, I like to have a system with the applications I want, not the applications that the system wants for me, I mean, that's the point of GNU/Linux, isn't?

Thus I want to remove some applications from KDE, let's say KWrite. I know it's a good text editor, but Kate is way better, at least for me, and... I should have the authority to decide what applications I want on my system, I think you got the point.So I installed Kate, and when I try to remove KWrite, APT asks me to remove nothing but this applications: kde-baseapps kde-plasma-desktop.

I don't understand why do KDE forces me to get rid of the entire desktop... when I'm just trying to remove a single application, and a replacement it's already installed.

Ubuntu :: Trouble Removing GNOME

Jan 13, 2010

I had installed Ubuntu Studio to check it out alongside my normal KDE system, and have decided to remove it. Problem is, having installed GNOME, I also got programs and libraries I no longer want or need alongside my existing KDE ones (ex. File Roller and Ark, I don't really need both, so I removed FR; I've removed other such programs I know about, as well). But I don't know all the programs or libraries that are still on here; in my package manager with a filter set for only installed programs I see a lot when I search 'gnome', but I'm wary of uninstalling things when I don't know what they do or if they're being used (I do have GNOME applications; I prefer Pidgin so I chose that over Kopete, for instance).

I ran apt-get uninstall ubuntustudio-desktop but despite the install process taking about 20 minutes it removed it in about 20 seconds...and seeing all these programs weren't removed along with it, I can see why. Is there a way I can remove all these things? They're taking up room and I'm not using them. I already did apt-get autoremove, as well. Anything else I can do to find and remove these programs besides reading through every single entry in my package manager's list of installed programs?

Ubuntu :: Removing Gnome Screensaver

Mar 12, 2011

The Gnome Screensaver preferences window is freezing my desktop. I went into synaptic and tried to remove it (to use xscreensaver instead). But synaptic, in removing gnome-screensaver package, wanted to ADD a bunch of packages, lots of KDE stuff (which I don't want). Is there any way around this? If not, is there a way to reset the gnome-screensaver config file (whatever it is) so that it doesn't freeze on startup? This problem arose after I selected a particular screensaver in the gui window.

Fedora Installation :: Safely Removing Gnome

Jun 15, 2011

I've been using Gnome for several years and haven't had any real problems with it. Now, however, I find the descriptions of what Gnome 3 and the Gnome Shell quite unsettling. That is, the Gnome devs have added a number of things I don't want, removed things I do want and made it impossible to configure Gnome 3 to work anywhere near what I want without adding unsupported third-party extensions. (Note: this is neither a complaint nor a flame; it's just a statement of my personal taste and any attempts to argue about it will be ignored.)

Currently, I have installed XFCE and am very happy with it on my two F14 boxes. I know that if and when I move to F15 (or F16 if 15 continues to be as problematic as it is so far) the upgrade will include Gnome 3, even though I don't use it. I'd like, therefore, to remove it but without removing any bits and pieces of it that are needed by whatever programs I'm using. What's the safest way to do this?

Ubuntu :: Removing Gnome Panels In Lucid An Option?

Jun 14, 2010

I am interested in removing the gnome panels from my desktop in 10.04. I know i can auto-hide the top and bottom panels and there is also an option to delete them. When they auto-hide a small white line is still visible and i accidentally hover over them sometimes briefly showing them also. I also do not want to do anything permanent like deleting them.In some past forum posts i saw people saying go to System>Preferences>Sessions but this option seems to be missing in lucid and these seem to be for slightly older versions on ubuntu. I then added the gnome-session-properties command in the Edit Menu... of System but all it did was launch Startup Applications. One post i saw said to go into Sessions, required sessions and make it empty. Should this work like i want it too and if so, is there an option like this still in Lucid. I basically want to remove the panels completely from my desktop, but still want to be able to bring them back if i want too also (Hopefully without having to edit them again, but i can live with it if i do).

Ubuntu :: Removing An Uninstalled Wine Game Shortcut From Gnome-Do?

I Installed wine and starcraft recently, which I have been able to run before but It didn't like my new computer. Whatever, Starcraft 2 comes out soon and I have played my fair share of broodwar, so i decided to uninstall it. I removedarcraft from wine and then wine itself, however my Gnome-Do still has the shortcut/iconor starcraft when I type it in. Im guessing i need to go into gconfig-editor to fix it, but Im not brave enough to venture in without any advice before hand.

Debian Multimedia :: How To Do Multiseat With GNOME
