I have installed Linux Mint Cinnamon 17.3 64 bit. I had installed mate desktop on the top of it. I want to remove mate desktop completely. I tried apt-get purge and autoremove, but mate is shown in login manager. How can I completely get rid of it?
Have you tried to uninstall with apt-get:
sudo apt-get uninstall mate-*
sudo apt-get remove mate-* sudo apt-get autoremove
dpkg --purge mate-* --force-all
