I wanted to test out gnome 3.18 desktop environment on my Ubuntu 16.04 (a very bad decision, on retrospect). Things got weird, gnome elements started affecting the unity desktop, lots of freezes. So I decided to remove gnome shell. I used the following commands:
sudo apt-get purge gnome-shell ubuntu-gnome-desktop sudo apt-get autoremove unity --replace sudo apt-get install --reinstall ubuntu-desktop
I don't know if something was wrong with the order of the commands.
Anyway, after a restart, I am still left with a gnome leftover. This:
I have never seen this before, totally clueless how it got there. Any idea how to remove this?
By the way, during system shutdown and restart, the gnome logo is showing up instead of the usual ubuntu logo, which probably means I did a messy job of sweeping out GNOME altogether. Please help me out!
