how do you knw if gnome istalled?


I am using KDe as my primary desktop, however I have been reviewing my packages and quite a few of the rpms relate to gnome. I want to know

1. If GNome is installed?
2. If it is installed how to uninstall?
3. Are there packages that KDE and Gnome both use? If so which ones?

in a terminal such as xterm or konsole, type:
whereis gnome
if it's installed, it will return something like
gnome /usr/share/gnome
if it's not installed, it will just return
gnome.

Well, you are probably using programs that rely on Gnome. If you are, you are gonna have fun if things don't work after uninstalling it, if it will even let you.

Kde does not rely on gnome at all, however, you may have desktop agnostic apps installed that rely on gnome libraries. rpm -e gnome should tell you what dependencies will be broken. There should be an option to rpm that just tells you what it would do without actually doing it, but I'm not too sure as I haven't used rpms in about three years or so.

RhythmBox is an example (I think this one needs Gnome Libraries)....this program will run fine in KDE...as it will in any window manager...but it relies on Gnome Libraries....unless you are in dire need for hard drive space I would suggest just leaving it the way it is.

Limewire is a program that requires Java. So, removing the Gnome libraries would be like removing the Java Runtime Environment from your system and expecting Limewire to still function properly.
