- How to remove desktop environments? 7 answers
I recently installed MATE desktop on ubuntu 16.04 and later decided to uninstall it. I did so using the command
sudo apt-get remove mate-desktop.
It was uninstalled and was no longer available on the login screen as an option. But i think that not everything related to MATE was removed. I know this because i still have MATE-terminal in my applications list. I could, of course, just uninstall it but then what about other hidden items that are not so obvious. I prefer not having them at all.
I tried running the commands suggested here, but it doesn't solve the problem.
