This question is similar to What is secure to remove from GNOME Desktop => GNOME (but not a duplicate).
I want to remove the GNOME desktop environment. Running the proposed command in this question does not work on Fedora 29.
$ sudo dnf group remove gnome-desktop-environment Warning: Group 'gnome-desktop-environment' is not installed. Error: No groups marked for removal.
I noticed there is a group called
sudo dnf group remove gnome-desktop lists hundreds (all?) of installed packages for removal. It includes packages that are not at all related to GNOME (such as
texlive-*, ...). I fear that running this command will force me to do a full re-install of the system.
Is there a safe way to remove GNOME's desktop environment from Fedora 29 that leaves me with a functioning KDE install?
I just want to reclaim some disk space (not all of it..)
