how do I (safely) remove gnome?


hi,
how do I unistall the gnome desktop environment from debian?
I still want to use some gnome apps though.
Also, I am currently using gdm to login graphically.
Is there another login manager? If not I would like keep this, despite deleting gnome.

How do I do that?
I use synaptic for package management.

Then you dont want to uninstall gnome.
Unless Im missing something removing gnome will remove all the libs/dependencies for all those apps. Unless drive space is a problem, just leave gnome alone and start using another DE


You could remove Gnome and all associated packages, then reinstall the apps you want. But that is a waste of time really.
