I installed Cinnamon on top of Gnome in Ubuntu Gnome 13.10. I would like to remove the unnecessary parts of gnome, primarily the settings which show as duplicates with the cinnamon ones, making it hard to distinguish which is which. I tried removing gnome-shell, but it caused the computer not to boot to the login screen. Even If I must keep some parts installed, how can I remove the unnecessary components of gnome?
As the Gnome Settings panel is the application
Hint: I have no clue why, but at the first time removing the control center apt wanted to install a bunch of unity stuff and even unity8, so check what apt-get will do before typing
