I've customized my install by stripping out all the unity packages that make the system unusable for me and replaced panels with AWN.
sudo apt-get remove unity unity-asset-pool unity-lens-applications unity-lens-files unity-lens-music unity-lens-video unity-scope-musicstores unity-scope-video-remote
Then removed all the programs i didnt want
sudo apt-get auto-remove libreoffice* gwibber empathy shotwell firefox thunderbird brasero
It has worked for months. now suddenly it cant load session Ubuntu.
So i switched ttys and installed
ubuntu-desktop again and it reinstalled all of
unity libreoffice brasero firefox shotwell thunderbird gwibber empathy and a handful of other stuff i cannot stand and didn't want.
And removing any of the offending packages now breaks Ubuntu again and needs to be reinstalled. So now I'm stuck with unity AND my awn panels and window decorations that are more useless than anything I've ever seen (cant move windows around menus are stuck to the top and uclickable). how do i fix this?
