remove kdeedu and amusements without removing kde


How can I remove kdeedu and amusements without removing the base kde? Apt tells me this is what it's going to do, but that's not what I want.

I would go ahead and delete it all, then restore the pieces you want.

Yeah ... You might need to reinstall a few other pieces, too. You'll have to experiment, or find someone who knows more about kde than I do ... but 'install kde' means, Give me everything.

It won't uninstall anything else. That just means you won't have all of kde installed. (KDE is a meta-package)

So that means it will uninstall kdeedu and amusements and basically the nomenclature that refers to the full kde but still leaave me with a working environment? I have been a gnome user for sometime and decided to use kde for a while so I am a little unfamiliar with some of the file packages. I guess since this is a new installation I'll just throw caution to the wind and try it. Worst case I'll have drop back into flux and do some fixin'. I'll report back what happens for anyone else that might need it.

Well I thought I uninstalled it... I used completely remove from synaptic and it supposedly removed. I restarted and the menu items and all the programs still existed. Oh, well I guess it's not a big issue. But it's certainly weird.
