Remove Gnome together KDE?

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?

The world needs more people with such thoughts!

Friend, where am I demanding something? I think you need to learn to interpret text better and be less arrogant. I just asked for help, if no one wants to help, that's fine! As I said before, IF I can't solve it and I WANT to solve it, I'll format the computer again. I'm just trying to avoid it.

Thanks for the information that Garuda works on arch linux, now I can search things more easily, I didn't know that.

I just think you guys lack a little more patience...

Arrogant is not responding to helpful hints.
Also nice is the attempt to fall into the victim role when you don't like the answers.

Since there is no solution for your messed up system, install the last working snapshot.


I'm not making myself a victim, I just came to ask for help. Whoever wants help, whoever doesn't, just ignore it.

If someone who has tested it like I did and didn't like the result, that's what happened. Just type the command in the terminal:

sudo pacman -R gnome-desktop

If you have a package that is preventing you from uninstalling, you will need to delete it. BEWARE, only delete what you are sure will not compromise your operating system.

I only needed to delete what had "gnome" in the package. I restarted and the system worked 100% normal here.


Note: here is the solution for my "messy" system.

You were warned by three different individuals not to install multiple DE's on your other thread on this topic. Now you act all hurt and offended when after ignoring that advice your new request for help is not well recieved.

Frankly I would have locked this thread immediately after you opened it if I'd seen it. You were told not to install multiple DE's by multiple forum assistants and borked your system through your own disregard and negligence. Then you expect advice on how to clean up the mess you made after being told numerous times not to do what you did.

There is no advice applicable in cases like this. The only good advice is don't install multiple DE's. This was the advice you were already given. Why bother asking for advice when you simply ignore it anyways.

You are wasting support time on our forum. If you continue to waste our valuable time in this manner you will be silenced for several weeks from posting on our forum to give you one chance to reform your behaviour. After that, discipline will become progressively more harsh if this behaviour continues.


Patience is an interesting thing - especially when it comes to dealing with all kinds of people online. We could spoonfeed everything, sure. But whats the result after doing so? People will come back and expect to get spoonfed some more once the next issue arises which stresses the ressources of the team doing this in their freetime and doesnt really help YOU - the user - either. Our goal is to get you ready to be your own sysadmin which involves doing some research on your own :wink:
( Worked some years in a job where I helped people getting along with their life - the motto was always "only help where its really needed" which is important to have a long term effect. I think this applies here as well. You see, point of views can be different :wink: )
