Completely remove KDE


Hi all,
I have just upgraded my system to Slackware64 14.0 as per AlienBob's guide (Cheers for that!).

When I installed 13.37 from the DVD, I intentionally did not select the KDE software sets, but using install-new during the upgrade process has installed it.

Using slackpkg (or any other method for that matter), is there a way for me to remove the entire software set, or do I have to go through and remove each package individually?

Any insight would be great!

Regards,
Jack Hunt

Try this:

Code:
# slackpkg remove kde
Cheers,

Thanks,

But that removes just KDE, right? Not all of the stuff included in its software set?

It should remove the kde package set, as in the packages from $slackware_repository/kde directory.

My apologies for questioning your answer.
