Deselecting GNOME desktop doesn't deselect GNOME Apps
Last modified: 2013-01-09 20:40:43 EST
Description of problem:
When I deselect the GNOME desktop on the DVD and instead select KDE, my
installation is still cluttered with default GNOME apps (i.e. totem,
rhythmbox, sound juicer, evolution, etc.). This apps have perfectly good KDE
counterparts and should be deselected when GNOME is deselected.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
Deselect GNOME and GNOME apps will still be present. You'll need to spend an
additional 2-3 more minutes going through sub-categories to deselect all GNOME
I would expect Firefox and GIMP to be default on all desktop installations but
why would I need Evolution if Kontact is present? Why would I need Totem with
Kaffeine present? This adds additional dependencies and clutters my system.
I'm not sure of a good way to handle this without creating a spin of the release
without those packages present. Perhaps using the KDE Live image is a solution?
