Remove Gnome together KDE?

Can anyone tell me how to remove Gnome from KDE? I ended up noticing that the two of them really don't look good together. So I installed fedora Gnome on another partition. How do I remove through the terminal? Grateful

GNOME and KDE are desktop environments and consist of many different packages.

You can remove the packages in the way you would remove any package - simply uninstall the packages you installed.

Not sure what you mean here. You want to wipe the Fedora installation?


I simply want the command for the terminal, to delete the gnome I installed along with the kde plasma from the garuda distribution. :smiley:

How did you install GNOME?

Through the terminal.

sudo pacman -S gnome

Great. Then you can use the -Remove command instead. :wink:

You can identify individual packages from the gnome group that you have installed with pacman -Qg gnome .


You could write the commands for me to just copy and paste. I'm still a layman... Thanks for your help brother

man pacman


If you don't want to learn and don't enjoy learning, don't use an Arch-based distribution, please.

You might end up running a formula that wipes your system and your data.


Can't we simply remove using the Add/Remove GUI software :thinking:

Open it . Go to installed menu on top.

Search for gnome (main package not library or dependencie )

Click remove. It will ask whether to remove related package. Click yes..done :man_shrugging:t4:

You can see how different people's perceptions of rude are.
I consider it rude to beg for copy and paste help.
Why we do not offer spoon feeding here in the forum has been explained often enough.

You are of course free to help all the beginners but it might soon be too much for you because there are more and more of them every day.


But you don't want to learn by making your own mistakes, else why ask us instead of doing your own research and learning from your own mistakes. Instead, you want to learn from our mistakes?

Don't Be A Help Vampire!

EDIT: This is for the OP, @Lios, but an explanation of why is for @nalisan007.


Honesty just is. It's not good or bad. Polite or rude. It's just honest.


Hmm . Suggesting to rectify on own after understanding all logic from basic to advance of python , Kernal (logic & binary) ,desktop(conflict , read every single line of code and find whether it may be a bug) , tracing activities from user level to binary level for debugging application , create a poll whether this behaviour is specific or common to all, learn every single line of code to understand everything just to not asking somebody for help.

Can someone help me with idea of forum.

It would definitely be exhaustive to help all in low level. Ofcourse I don't support spoon feeding. But at a starting period of atleast one week ,it may help....

I'm not expert like others. But I think to contribute in my level

Just exchange of lines to understand each persons unique view

Somewhere you missed real-world logic? Your python was pablum? Ahhh, poor tot.



If one shouldn't ask for others help and should not learn from others mistake , learning python
( ~Not my python~ nevermind :grin:)to analyse the code of programs to trace, tweak ,Debug seems to be a way

:100: Perceptions too. Diverse Views & perceptions are better :relieved:


And who told you I didn't? I always do research before, but as Garuda is a new distro you don't find much material about it. I came to ask for two reasons, first that we often go through our heads looking for a solution, being that a simple code can solve it and more experienced users can help us with this calmly. Second, I don't speak English and the documentation is all in English, which makes it very difficult. Even using a tool to translate is not 100% comprehension. I believe that the community is precisely to help each other and not to give us moral lessons. I'm getting interested in linux now, there are a lot of things that are extremely simple on windows that we've riddled here. Not everyone is willing to use linux as an advanced tool, they just want to use a different system to get out of the boring old Windows.

Thanks to everyone who will help. Anything if I want to solve it I format the machine again.



Does anybody else reflect with this though :thinking:


Don't make it too easy for the helpers, hide all your own attempts.

When searching, just type in Linux Arch or wiki.arch beforehand, Garuda based on Arch so Garuda is an old Distribution.

Think about this answer.

You disregard the warning and now demand that we clean up your mistake?
