Cant you just remove the applications from the menu without uninstalling
them? It wont take that long.

Subject: Breezy Badger - Ubuntu Kubuntu mix
On my desktop computer I am running Ubuntu 5.10. A short while ago
I decided I wanted to have a look at Kubuntu as well. So I installed
kubuntu-desktop with all the packages it depends on. This worked out
well. Or at least as well as I could expect...
At login I can chose wether I want to start Gnome or KDE and both work
very well. Even so I'm not completely satisfied. The problem is that
in the menues in Gnome I now have lots of KDE-applications, and in KDE
I have lots of Gnome-applications.
It's understandable that this happened and that the installer thought this
was what I wanted. But now -in hindsight- I wish Gnome had kept itself
Gnome-only and KDE had ended up KDE-only.
If I want to have both a "clean" Ubuntu and a "clean" Kubuntu on the same
computer, do I have to set this up as dual-booting two independant
operating systems? Or is there a brainier way to achieve this?
Setting up Ubuntu and Kubuntu "on top of eachother" can be an ok way
to let a potential convert have a look at both before she decides. If I do
this, what is the best way to remove only the packages that belongs to
the flavour that she doesn't want? I mean, if she decides she likes KDE
better, how do I remove the Ubuntu-only packages in a way that doesn't
Apologies if I have been too verbose...
