apt-get remove kolf-kde4 will remove kde4?


Hi I wanted to remove some packages I don't use, like "kolf-kde4" (game for playing golf).

Giving the commmand:
Code:
apt-get remove kolf-kde4
returns in:
The following packages will be REMOVED:
kde4 kde4-amusements kdegames-kde4 kolf-kde4

Don't I need kde4 to run my desktop?

At the moment I'm running Kubuntu, KDE 4.1.2

Regards,
Michiel

The other packages listed are all "metapackages" -- that is, wrappers for installing a group of other packages at once. Trying to remove one of the sub-packages breaks a metapackage, so it must be removed as well. Don't worry, you aren't actually removing any of the important stuff; but every sub-package must be handled individually afterwards.
