A few days ago I installed Xubuntu on top of a normal Ubuntu system:
sudo apt-get install xubuntu-desktop
I didn't play around for long on Xubuntu before I realised that I liked Ubuntu 2D better. Now my problem is how do I uninstall Xubuntu and all of it's dependencies and the recommended packages like Thunar and Abiword.
For now I just run:
sudo apt-get remove xubuntu-*
but I still have a lot left from Xubuntu. It would be nice if by doing
apt-get remove xubuntu-desktop
all of the packages installed with the metapackages were also removed, but that is not the case.
