Reinstall Gnome


Hi!

I use on my slack 9.0 WindowMaker but I got Gnome 2.2 too!!
I need to reinstall Gnome 'cause i've tried some changes and now doesn't work well.

My question is:

Can I uninstall Gnome without removing libraries, etc, used by the other programs too??
Or it doesn't matter??




TNX

i suggest you install dropline gnome; it will fix your current
gnome installation as well.

Maybe another question, more generic is better??

How can I uninstall Gnome??
I used pkgtool but there are many different pkgs named gnome such as Gnome-panel,...
Must I uninstall all ???

you would have to install all.

dropline gnome is a special gnome version for slackware and a few
other linux distributions similar to slackware, which is very is to install
using an installer which takes care of dependencies.

dropline can be found here.
