I have been facing the same issues like this https://askubuntu.com/questions/636250/how-to-compleately-remove-the-i3-desktop-enviroment-from-ubuntu#= but with Debian. I have removed i3 files but still it shows up in initial sign-in window when login. How can i remove i3 WM from debian completely? (I already have GNOME)
I have used following simple commands:
- sudo apt-get remove i3
- sudo apt-get purge i3
- sudo apt-get autoremove
I furthur used
- sudo apt list --installed | grep desktop
to look at all the desktop word containing environments and confirmed that i3 was not there. Then why am I seeing i3 in login window?
