I installed a GUI on Ubuntu Server 12.04 LTS using sudo aptitude install --without-recommends ubuntu-desktop not sure why just playing around. Any way I would like to remove it and cannot figure out how.

It should be as easy as telling apt you want to remove Xorg and it will trigger removal of all the packages which depend on X.

sudo apt-get remove xserver-xorg-core

Just in case that doesn't work, here is a list of everything which ubuntu-desktop triggers to be installed on my bare ubuntu-server install:

The old girl decided to die and I had to recreate my server on another machine, therefore I never had a chance to try this. Thank you though. I didnt want to leave it hanging out there and I am nto sure what the protocol is to accept the answer. –  LandArch Feb 27 '13 at 13:22
    
Thanks for the list of packages. I just tried removing all of those from a Saucy GUI install and it left it quite unable to boot. Somehow, upstart among other things was removed. –  Sean Reifschneider Jan 31 at 18:43
