I don't use my desktop for files, I don't use a desktop wallpaper, it's useless to me but still needs to load everytime i boot up... so is there a way for me to remove the desktop?
I have a desktop PC that has been for a few years on xubuntu. I have decided, however to move all my systems to xubuntu.
I installed most of the systems through a CD (reinstallation) but this one has lots of important files, backups, etc (several TB). I therefore decided to install kubuntu-desktop from aptitude.
I'm fairly new to the whole linux/ubuntu environment. I installed KDE Plasma desktop, but after about a week of using it I realized that I would rather stick with the Unity desktop. My question is, how do I remove KDE Plasma desktop in one single sweep? I could remove everything from the software center, but that's to time consuming and it wouldn't rid me of all the desktop's files.
I just upgraded to pangolin. I originally installed xubuntu on a small netbook, but I now only use it as an ssh server for a variety of things. Because I never use the desktop environment, I would like to either remove it, or prevent it from starting.
I loaded Gnome Desktop to my wife's laptop. She didn't like it so continued to boot in Unity. However, suddenly Unity doesn't display the items on the desktop (she doesn't keep a clean-desktop) even though all the items are still in the Desktop folder.
I've installed xubuntu-desktop and I want to get rid of all the ubuntu-desktop and Unity-related packages. But all the guides I've found are either outdated (psychocatz) or simply don't work (aptitude). What can I do to remove all the ubuntu-desktop packages?
