Quick HOWTO: Remove GNOME from a Debian install.Posted: September 2, 2010
Surprisingly, the Squeeze CD I downloaded today had GNOME on it. Thinking I’ll be able to remove it, I installed it. It was useless, except the fact that it fixed my framebuffer , so I tried removing it.
Well, after a few unsuccessful attempts, I found a command that removes all of GNOME:
sudo apt-get autoremove --purge gnome*
Isn’t that sweet? Tell me if it helped you down in the comment section.
