Ubuntu – Completely Remove LXDE/Lubuntu Desktop Environment


I've install LXDE on my laptop due to Unity's disappointing performance. But now, I want to completely remove LXDE including it's entire list of programs that came installed with it. How do I go about doing so?

Best Answer

In a Terminal type:

sudo apt purge --remove lxde*; sudo apt autoremove -y


sudo apt purge --remove lubuntu-*; sudo apt autoremove -y

That'll do it.

or Open up the Software Center and look for the package lxde and uninstall it.

lxde is a meta-package, install it will install everything lxde, removing it will remove everything it installed.
