I tried sudo apt-get install gnome
but it says
The following information may help to resolve the situation:

The following packages have unmet dependencies.
gnome: Depends: gnome-desktop-environment (= 1: but it is not going to be installed
E: Broken packages

Edit: nvm i think ive sorted it

I've got to install some other scripts which require restarts so once I get round to it I will restart it. If it doesn't work post here again, thanks for your help

sudo apt-get install gnome


sudo apt-get install kde3.5

Well as long as your a confident linux user it shouldn't be too much of a problem

Warning: Use at your own risk!

Remove Desktop:

apt-get remove gnome*
apt-get remove xserver*
I don't know the exact details to disable it when using NX client. That bit is up to you should you choose to disable rather than remove.

Also I ordered the other server @ 1am on the 28th, it says in my invoice the server has been located just needs an OS install and connection or something.
Can I expect this on Sunday or will I have to wait until monday?

Edit: Order5241952 2009-02-18 01:32:11 * - Kimsufi XL Standard 08 Revolution - 1 month
- Dedicated server installation fees
- Ubuntu 8.04 LTS Desktop operating system - english

You might need that, sorry to tripple post, I can't see an edit button

Anyway I saw on another forum saturday was counted for the 72 hour wait, So shouldn't I have got mine today?

Hey neil, well maybe not remove it, just disable the desktop part of it. And yea I have ordered a new server which I will have the normal ubuntu server on, it's basically because I was new to linux and wanted the desktop but now that I am more aware of how things work and already have everything installed I wont need the desktop, therefore would rather disable it if possible as I immagine it using a little bit of ram

If you want to remove the whole of remote desktop then I would recommend not to, have you considered Ubuntu Server which is what I think what you really want.

I have a package with ubuntu desktop, and I was wondering can I remove the desktop to free up some ram, or can I just disable it?
