If I try to uninstall
libunity9 on Precise, it tries to uninstall lots of GNOME applications:
how could the ubuntu developers possibly think that would be a good idea? Ubuntu is starting to be more and more like windows :(
libunity9 package is described as:
binding to get places into the launcher - shared library
libunity is a shared library to be able to interact with the launcher and add places in Unity environment.
This package contains shared libraries to be used by applications
So obviously it's a component of Unity. It is odd that GNOME applications depend on Unity. Since Unity is an Ubuntu-specific addition, upstream GNOME apps shouldn't be depending on it.
Why these dependencies?
