This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

I have nominate it to reopen. Uninstall is not the same than remove. All the answers of the other question tell how to remove but keep Unity installed, so they are not useful as an answer to this question. – Javier Rivera Feb 28 '11 at 17:32

You can uninstall Unity via the Software Centre, (Applications ➜ Ubuntu Software Centre). Type unity in the search box, select Unity and then select remove (see screenshot)

enter image description here

You will need to select all applications associated with Unity to remove it completely.

If you are in 10.04 you will do the same thing – Reuben Swartz Feb 28 '11 at 13:30
Can you move this answer to the original question which this is now a dupe of? It's a good answer! – Jorge Castro Feb 28 '11 at 17:25
@Jorge - will do, just need to figure out how...... – Mark Rooney Mar 1 '11 at 8:51
