X Windows

Post by X-Factor » Wed Sep 24, 2003 5:04 pm

Is there an easy way to get rid of X Windows? I thought there was a way to do it with apt-get but I am not sure.

My box is a remote hosted box, and no idea why it has X on it, hehe.

I would think that "apt-get remove XFree86" would get rid of most of it as most anything X related should be dependent on that. You might also have to remove base gnome/kde libraries to get the bulk of those windowing systems (like "apt-get remove kdelibs").

Sometimes people install X on the server but don't actually run it on the server. They run the X apps on the server and display them on the X server running on their local machine.
