For gnome check the second answer which is a possible duplicate: How to remove and reinstall GNOME 3?

For gnome classic possible duplicate: How to remove Gnome-fallback?

I copied the commands for you. However check the links to know what will happend if you used these commands since these commands may remove programs/dependencies you may want to keep.


sudo apt-get remove kubuntu-desktop 

EDIT: WAIT Before using the last 2 commands I need someone else to tell if removing the gnome would also remove the cinnamon desktop !! if yes then probably you dont want to use it.

Gnome Classic

sudo apt-get remove gnome-session-fallback


sudo apt-get remove gnome-shell
