Remove KDE


I orignally only had GNOME installed, then when i selected to install KDE games on the system using GNOME's add/remove, somehow KDE was installed.

i HATE KDE very much, but i cant remove it, the system doesnt even have the KDE checkbox checked in the add/remove menu,

Is there some specific RPM packages i need to remove?
Can someone tell me how i may remove KDE manually?

you need the KDE libraries to run those games I bet. When you installed the games... the RPM package probably decided to make KDE a dependancy which is why it installed it.

KDE isn't that bad

anyway, see if the kde packages are separated into things like kdebase, kdelibs, etc. If so, try to remove kdebase and hope it doesn't remove your games also. RPM has let me down in the past, so good luck to you.

kde needs to be installed for kde games to work. that's why your installer put it on, but it did just enough to get kde-games to work. i bet it installed about 10 packages or so. kde-libs and several things like that. make your package manager sort alphabetically, and and uncheck the kde stuff that got installed.

what distro are you using? if you are running slackware its is pretty easy just use the 'pkgtool' command and choose remove. then select everything with kde in the name... if not slackware i think it might be a bit harder... good luck.

TO answer everyones question....

I posted this question in the fedora section, b/c i am running Fedora Core 2... and i cant just unselect the KDELIBS... etc


I did manager to remove KDE... i just removed each package invidually using RPM, then rebuilt the database, now the "Add/remove apps" shows KDE is not installed

now i have a whole bunch of dead links in the "start menu"(to new to linux to know what to call this)

How do i remove things like that from it, dead links that is.

nevermind about those dead links...

I just did a restart of GNOME, and that took care of everything.

Thanks everyone for their help.

Just as a help to those of us who don't make that connection,
and for the times you post in another forum, how about adding
your distribution in your LQ UserCP

as root, this will give you all your pci devices, and the first line is the
chipset of your motherboard. Might not help tell you who made it, or
it may, but the chipset is often more important than who put their name on it.
