I’m using Gnome as my default DE after my KDE4 dissapointment, however what’s bothering me for some time now is that I have to “live” with applications that I don’t even use or like for that matter. So why “live” with those? Well if I try to remove some of those applications it’ll want to “pull down” my whole DE along with them, however I couldn’t believe solution was so simple.
Applications I don’t want to live with are: evolution, epiphany, empathy, ekiga, liferea, gnome-accessibility and couple of others. Step 1 might seem as it wants to remove “whole” DE, but it all it wants is gnome-desktop-environment which is meta/dummy package so don’t worry.
sudo apt-get remove epiphany epiphany-browser-data epiphany-data empathy
empathy-doc libempathy30 libempathy-common libempathy-gtk28 liferea
liferea-data evolution ekiga gok dasher orca gnome-accessibility
openoffice.org-evolution evolution-common evolution-data-server
more “Life without evolution”
Here’s a quick update just so you think I’m not doing anything.
A week ago I got my Sony Ericsson W960i it’s a complete beast so I’m still trying to tame it :) I’ll post a video of it and it’s capabilites and features in shortest period. Second hosting has been upgraded, so lots of space, and from now on emails you get here, will be 1gb.
Besides that all, I’m working on putting up the forum, because as I see it, you wanted forum so you’ll get it :)
There, little something, so you know what’s/something’s happening ;)
Yesterday I got a respond that emails that were sent from @foolcontrol email accounts would end up in “junk” folder on hotmail. Fact that Microsoft obviously dislikes me and what I’m doing here on foolcontrol are rather obvious :P
For Gmail and rest of the crowd, emails sent from foolcontrol are not marked as spam/junk. Since I know for a fact that none of the guys is using their accounts for spam, spf record is added to the domain, and we’ll see how this goes.
I’m sorry for the inconvenience.
