Duck Duck Go

uninstall a surprise gnome install from your debian testing xfce desktop.


2013-07-04

I boot up my Debian Testing XFCE machine, login to a slow startup and surprise it's F'ing gnome 3 shell.

WTF?!?!?!  This is not what I had in mind for 4th of July fireworks.  I hate this bullshit!  Seriously, Debian testing just installed gnome without my authority!??!?! (Granted, yes i know nothing happens without authority -- updates suck sometimes)

sudo aptitude purge gnome-applets gnome-session-fallback gnome-control-center-data gnome-control-center gnome-media gnome-online-accounts gnome-bluetooth gnome-panel-data gnome-panel mousetweaks gnome-panel gnome-session gnome-shell  ; sudo reboot


ahhhh much better!!!!


but now i'm aggravated...

sudo shutdown -h now

walking away...
